In 2022, Medical Science Educator, the journal of the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE), will be publishing a special journal section dedicated to the topic of:
Innovations and Developments in Virtual and
Augmented Reality in Basic Science Education
Health sciences education is always in motion and new educational strategies and technologies are continuously being added to the instructional toolbox of educators. Technologies like Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality using visualization tools offer teaching techniques that were not available in the past, offering us possibilities to have students experience phenomena that cannot be demonstrated in a live or practical setting. Especially in the field of teaching basic sciences like Anatomy, Physiology and others, the use of VR and AR can be pioneering and groundbreaking.
The Editorial Board of Medical Science Educator is currently soliciting article submissions on this topic and welcome contributions in the selected formats of Innovation, Short Communication, or descriptive Monograph. Please see our website www.medicalscienceeducator.org for a more detailed description of these article types. All submissions will be peer-reviewed according to our regular review process. Accepted manuscripts will be collected in a special section in issue 32(6) or will be published in one of the regular issues the year after.
Manuscripts to be considered for this special section must be submitted by
March 15, 2022.
Please submit manuscripts through our online submission system that can be found by visiting: www.medicalscienceeducator.org. In your cover letter, clearly refer to the topic “Innovations and Developments in Virtual and Augmented Reality in Basic Science Education” to indicate that you would like to be included in the special section. See our journal website to review the Instructions for Authors.
I look forward to receiving your submissions.
