Author Guidelines and Submitting
CEE publishes papers in the broad
field of chemical engineering education. Papers generally describe a course, a laboratory,
a ChE department, a ChE educator, a ChE curriculum, research program, machine computation,
special instructional programs, or give views and opinions on various topics of interest
to the profession.
Use specific and informative titles. They should be as brief as possible, consistent with
the need for defining the subject area covered by the paper.
Be consistent in authorship designation. Use first name, second initial, and surname. Give
complete mailing address of place where work was conducted. If current address is
different, include it in a footnote on title page.
- ABSTRACT: KEY WORDS
Include an abstract of 75 words or less and up to four keywords for use in
We request that manuscripts not exceed twelve double-spaced typewritten pages in length (max. 5,500 words). Longer manuscripts may be returned to the author(s) for revision/shortening before being reviewed. Assume your reader is not a novice in the field. Include only as much history as is needed to provide background for the particular material covered in your paper. Sectionalize the article and insert brief appropriate headings. In the interests of brevity and standalone readability, CEE discourages submission of multi-part papers. Authors who feel that their topic requires an exception should obtain approval from the editor before submission of a multi-part paper.
Avoid tables and graphs which involve duplication or superfluous data. If you can use a
graph, do not include a table. If the reader needs the table, omit the graph. Substitute a
few typical results for lengthy tables when practical. Avoid computer printouts.
Follow nomenclature style of Chemical Abstracts; avoid trivial names. If trade names are
used, define at point of first use. Trade names should carry an initial capital only, with
no accompanying footnote. Use consistent units of measurement and give dimensions for all
terms. Write all equations and formulas clearly, and number important equations
Include in acknowledgment only such credits as are essential.
- LITERATURE CITED
Papers need to reflect knowledge of the engineering education literature in addition to the appropriate technical literature by citing pertinent sources. Authors can search the CEE website - http://cee.che.ufl.edu/ as well as other relevant engineering education journals such as the Journal of Engineering Education(http://www.asee.org/publications/jee/index.cfm), Proceedings of ASEE Annual Conferences (http://www.asee.org/conferences/v2search.cfm), Proceedings of ASEE Frontiers in Education (FIE) Conferences (http://fie.engrng.pitt.edu/), International Journal of Engineering Education, and European Journal of Engineering Education (http://www.asee.org/publications/international.cfm). References should be numbered and listed on a separate sheet in the order occurring in the text. Within the References list, each citation should name all the authors; only use “et al.” here in cases where there are 10 or more authors.
- COPY REQUIREMENTS
Submit the manuscript electronically as a single pdf file that includes all graphical material as well as tables and diagrams. Label ordinates and abscissas of graphs along the axes and outside the graph proper. Number all illustrations consecutively. Authors should also include brief biographical sketches. Prior to converting the manuscript file to pdf, we suggest authors add line numbers if it is convenient to do so. Send your electronic manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment to an e-mail that states the manuscript title, all author names, and the affiliated university. Be sure the subject line includes the words "manuscript submittal."
Regular papers (not including departmental profiles, educator profiles, guest editorials, reviews of books, and teaching tips) are peer reviewed. CEE reviewers are anonymous except for reviewers who explicitly request that their reviews include their names. CEE requests that authors not send either a list of potential reviewers or a list of people to avoid as reviewers. Authors who request a double blind review process are responsible for providing a pdf of the manuscript that has all identifying information blacked out.
If an author
who submits electronically does not receive a confirmation that the paper was received within two weeks, he or she should contact the CEE office.
