The PER Conference Proceedings

The Physics Education Research Conference Proceedings (PERC Proceedings) is the written record of the scholarly work presented at the annual Physics Education Research Conference.

The proceedings are sponsored by the Physics Education Research Topical Group (PERTG) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). The proceedings cover the full range of experimental and theoretical research on the teaching and/or learning of physics. The editors welcome submission of significant or final results as well as preliminary research results and discussions of works in progress. Contributed manuscripts undergo peer-review and the criteria for acceptance include high scholarly standards.


2021 PERC Proceedings

The theme of the 2021 PER Conference is "Making Physics More Inclusive and Eliminating Exclusionary Practices in Physics." The Conference will focus on defining inclusive spaces and practices and will explore strategies for eliminating exclusionary practices in our classrooms, research spaces, and professional organizations.

Abstract and paper submission for the 2021 PER Conference is now open. Peer review requests will be sent the second week in July.

The paper format will be the same as the 2020 paper format.

PERC Proceedings’ Readership: Physics education researchers (faculty, post-doctoral students, and graduate/undergraduate students); researchers in fields close to Physics Education, such as cognitive science, chemistry education, biology education; physics faculty at undergraduate and graduate levels; high school physics teachers.
