Themed Issue: Autumn 2016
Contributions are invited for a themed, peer-reviewed issue on Language and the teaching and learning of chemistry
For a long time language and science in general were two distinct domains that were seen as opposite to each other. However, the importance of language connected to science education in general and chemistry in particular is well known, especially when we are discussing the teaching and learning of the language(s) of chemistry or the linguistic heterogeneity of students. In this special themed issue we will focus on the learning and teaching of chemistry considering the role of language.
