Call for Papers: LSE Special Issue On Equity, Inclusion, Access, and Justice in Biology


To bring attention to Equity, Inclusion, Access, and Justice in biology education, CBE – Life Sciences Education (LSE; will publish a special issue in 2024 highlighting research articles, essays, and features that offer new insights into these topics. As a team of LSE Special Issue Guest Editors, we are passionate and enthusiastic about engaging the LSE community in deepening our collective understanding of Equity, Inclusion, Access, and Justice. A key goal of this special issue is to elevate research that investigates the unique experiences, assets, and resilience of communities impacted by systemic oppression in ways that intentionally marginalize them within the life sciences, biology education and other research, and STEM education. An additional goal of this special issue is to bring the theoretical frameworks, anti-deficit perspectives, methodological approaches, and critical lenses from fields such as higher education, race and resistance studies, gender and sexuality studies, disability justice, and other disciplines to biology education research and to the LSE readership. We welcome authors at all phases of their career, in a variety of professional positions and institutional contexts, and from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

Submission Deadline: October 15, 2023
