The Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research (J-PEER) is dedicated to addressing the downward trends in engineering interest, preparedness, and representation; to transforming P‐12 education to include engineering; to preparing a globally competitive engineering workforce; and ultimately to creating a society of engineering-‐literate citizens.
J-PEER is published on an open-access, public-good basis by Purdue University Press. Open access allows research to be freely available to all—including those from developing countries whose academic institutions may not be able to afford costly publications—in the interests of accelerating scientific progress, and ultimately resulting in public good. Open access not only ensures the widest dissemination of research possible, but also the greatest impact, by allowing others to cite, re-purpose, and build upon existing published research.
