Every season, The Cuvette releases a call for papers centered around a specific, highlighted topic. Contributors aiming to respond to these calls should explicitly acknowledge the specific call within their abstract.
A dedicated submission link will be provided for those who have been personally invited to contribute to The Cuvette. This streamlined process ensures that invited contributions are efficiently managed and processed.
While articles remain a cornerstone of academic communication, The Cuvette recognizes the vast potential of digital communication in today's age. We offer a platform for a wide range of media to disseminate innovations in science education:
Written Works: Articles, Literature Reviews, Commentaries, Poems, Short Stories
Visual Media: Infographics, Posters
Educational Resources: Books, Courses, Curricular Materials, Presentation Slides
Interactive Content: Panel Discussions, Podcasts, Talks
Note: Every contribution published with The Cuvette is permanently archived and assigned a citable DOI for academic referencing.
