About CourseSource

CourseSource is an open-access journal of peer-reviewed teaching resources for undergraduate biological sciences. We publish articles that are organized around courses in biological disciplines and aligned with learning goals established by professional societies representing those disciplines. Please let us know what you think as you explore the articles and other information in the journal.  We also welcome comments, questions, and/or suggestions. You can also follow us on Twitter (@CourseSource) to receive notifications about newly published articles and announcements! 

Writing curricula articles is different than what most scientists, educators, and students are used to. To help authors write high quality Lesson articles, we have created a ten-minute interactive "course" that summarizes how to write a Lesson that is replicable, has the necessary context, and follows the CourseSource grammar and style conventions. We urge authors to complete this short tutorial before beginning their manuscript, as this step will likely save time during the revision process. Check out the course below!

The short video below will provide a quick tour of the journal.
