GSA Prep
"...the Genetics Society of America Peer-Reviewed Education resource Portal (GSA PREP) is an online publication featuring peer-reviewed educational resources designed for immediate use in the classroom. GSA PREP resources promote the principles of inquiry-based, student centered learning based on core concepts and competencies in genetics."

Primers in GENETICS
"These Primers are a series of articles in the GSA Journal GENETICS designed to make current research articles useful in an undergraduate classroom or a senior seminar.  Each Research Primer is tied to a current article, and lays out necessary background, explains the hypothesis or approach, describes the methodology, guides the readers through the results, and sums up the discussion.  Each Model Organism Primer describes a genetic model system, including the organism's life cycle, history of use in the laboratory, available genetic and genomic tools, advantages of the system, discoveries made using the model organism, and more."

Advanced in Physiology Education
“Advances in Physiology Education promotes and disseminates educational scholarship in order to enhance teaching and learning of physiology, neuroscience and pathophysiology."

Undergraduate Research Journals

Life Science Teaching Resource Community
This site partners with many organizations, includeing the Genetic Society of American and the Society for Developmental Biology and many others to publish educational materials. Manuscripts submitted to this site are peer reviewed and will be open access if published.

Science in School
“Science in School is read by teachers of all science subjects, as well as others involved in science education. Articles therefore need to be accessible and interesting to an audience with a general science background, rather than targeting specialists in individual science subjects.”

From Education Research Perspective (Note-The only one of these journals I am familiar with is CBE Life Sciencs Education, so this is meant only as a list for you to find possibilities-Jennifer Liang)

CBE Life Sciences Education
"The journal publishes original, previously unpublished, peer-reviewed articles on research and evaluation related to life sciences education, as well as articles about evidence-based biology instruction at all levels."

African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education
“The editorial policy of' the Journal is to disseminate, as widely as possible, high quality research findings and well written articles on theory and practice in science, mathematics and technology education. Articles that promote the understanding of curricular policy and diverse socio-cultural issues and those which stimulate epistemological and methodological debates are welcome. The focus is on the development of indigenous research capacity in Africa without compromising the requirements of high standards. The editorial board welcomes articles that will contribute to the overall development of science, mathematics and technology education in Africa.”

Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching
“Appropriate submissions include: • Articles: Laboratory and field studies that work, course and curriculum development, innovative and workable teaching strategies that include some type of evaluation of the approaches, and approaches to teaching some of the ethical, cultural, and historical impacts of biology. • Reviews: Web site, software, and book reviews • Information: Technological advice, professional school advice, and funding sources • Letters to the Editor: Letters should deal with pedagogical issues facing college and university”
