Welcome to The STEAM Journal, a transdisciplinary, international, theory-practice, peer-reviewed, academic, open access, online journal with a focus on the intersection of the sciences and the arts. The STEAM Journal integrates perspectives from a variety of contexts and fields.
STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
This publication features the bridges between Science, Technology, Engineering Mathematics (STEM) and the Arts. In this context, the journal acts as a forum for open dialogue of STEAM as well as expanding the body of transdisciplinary knowledge. The STEAM Journal is a hub for scholars and practitioners of many disciplines who wish to provide commentary, exchange ideas and inform policy and practice of STEAM.
Although there is a long history of the interaction of the sciences with the arts, STEAM is a new acronym that has emerged over the last decade and has a multitude of definitions and approaches. Some of the main themes of STEAM are fostering innovation, the need for twenty-first century skills, and divergent and convergent thinking. The STEAM Journal welcomes a diverse dialogue on the many aspects of STEAM.
