CBE—Life Sciences Education
CBE—Life Sciences Education (CBE-LSE), a free, online quarterly journal from The American Society for Cell Biology, publishes peer-reviewed articles on life sciences education at the K–12, undergraduate, and graduate levels. Within biology, CBE-LSE focuses on how students are introduced to the study of life sciences and contains teaching approaches to cell biology, developmental biology, neuroscience, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, and proteomics. CBE-LSE is written by and intended to serve professionals engaged in biology teaching in all environments. All issues are published electronically, and an archive of all issues is available. One print issue, highlighting the best content of the year, is published each December in support of public information efforts. Regularly published features highlight the best of the Web in different topic areas, discuss recent research, and offer video and book reviews, reports on activities at the National Academies that impact life sciences education, and essays. Published articles are indexed in PubMed and are available through PubMed Central. CBE-LSE also publishes original electronic resources such as animations, 3-D visualizations, databases that can be used by students, collections of educational images, free downloadable software, and other interactive Web-based materials. Readers can register for email alerts about current content. The website also contains instructions for authors who wish to submit manuscripts.
Award Years: 2002 to present
Summary: The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) was founded in 1960 to promote and develop the field of cell biology. It achieves its objectives by disseminating research through its publications and meetings. The ASCB strives to ensure the future of basic scientific research by providing training and development opportunities for students and young investigators, and also by keeping Congress and the American public informed about the importance of biomedical research. Since its founding, the ASCB has grown to more than 11,000 members, who are located throughout the United States and in 50 other countries. The ASCB launched CBE—Life Sciences Education (CBE-LSE) in spring 2002 as Cell Biology Education—A Journal of Life Science Education. It changed the name of the journal in spring 2006 to reflect better the breadth of its readership and the scope of its submissions. HHMI has sponsored CBE since its inception.
