Beyond JEE: Finding publication venues to get your message to the ‘right’ audience: Intro and Methods

A quick guide that presents the information included in a 2013 ASEE Annual Conference paper and poster presentation. Updated in August 2014 to include 2013 ranking information.

Paper available from Purdue e-Pubs

Poster availble from ASEE ELD website

Know of missing titles?

If you know of titles related to STEM education and/or engineering education specifically that are not included in this initial list of 165 titles, please let me know, as I intend to be updating this information approximately annually and will happily include new titles.

Send titles for inclusion to the author, contact information included in the right panel of the page.


This LibGuide is an updated representation of a poster and paper originally written for the 2013 ASEE conference in Atlanta, GA. Information for 2015 was added and the lists updated in September 2016.

The slow dissemination of engineering education research into practice articulated by Borrego et al 2 and the insular publishing practices of the discipline identified by Wankat 3–6 support the need for researchers to get the word out more broadly within engineering disciplines and STEM education in general. The lists presented will give additional ideas to researchers on venues that may be appropriate for their research to reach a wider audience of practitioners and other educational researchers.

Creating a trusted list of publication venues is an important task for a newly recognized field. Such a list benefits researchers looking for publication venues and the librarians who need to develop and maintain collections for these researchers1. An additional benefit can be the use of such a list as one method of justifying what are the quality or top tier publications in a discipline for promotion and tenure committees7,8.



The initial list of resources for analysis came from the publication venues list that is part of the Engineering Education Community Resource ( Education Community Resource) created and maintained by ASEE student division and Center for Engineering Learning and Teaching (CELT), a total of 165 journals.

Additional titles were added for the 2013 update and are listed with the original list of titles below.

Information on impact factor from ISI, SJR rank, h-index from Google Scholar, peer review status, copyright and open access practices, indexing, and subject information were gathered when possible and used to generate ranked lists.

86 journals considered

Titles added for the 2015 update to the information based on location where the faculty of the Purdue School of Engineering Education have published.
