About the Physics Education Research Conference Proceedings

General Information

The Physics Education Research Conference Proceedings (PERC Proceedings) is a written record of the scholarly work presented at the annual Physics Education Research Conference (PERC). Contributed papers undergo peer review to ensure high standards of quality.

The PERC Proceedings are sponsored by the Physics Education Research Topical Group (PERTG) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). The PERC Proceedings cover the full range of experimental and theoretical research on the teaching and/or learning of physics. The editors welcome submission not only of significant or final results, but also of preliminary research results and discussions of works in progress.


As of 2013 the PERC Proceedings are distributed online without charge with financial support from the Physics Education Research Conference fees. Papers published in 2013 and beyond are provided by the American Association of Physics Teachers under the terms of a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License. From 2003 until 2012, the PERC Proceedings were published as part of their AIP Conference Proceedings Series and may be purchased from AIP. Pre-print papers of the PERC Proceedings from 2001-2012 are available on this website.
