ACEN subsidizes your work which contribute the enhancement of the network with web sites, articles or information!
There are three types of works for which ACEN subsidizes the workers.
(1) Construction of www page(s) on national (or regional) chemical education for international dissemination.
The page may either be stood alone or included in a home page of national chemical society. Preferably, the page shall be authorized by the educational division of the national chemical society or some group like that: this means that the contents are best prepared and managed either by the division staffs or by others under commission of the division. It should be written in English for international use.
(2) Preparation or revision of the contents for "Chemical Education in Asia-Pacific (CEAP)" on WWW.
Three years have passed since the publication of the issue "Chemical Education in Asia-Pacific". Since frequent publication in printed form is not easy due to financial difficulty, addition and/or correction will be made on the www version (URL = http://www.t.soka.ac.jp/chem/CEAP/).
There are several member countries from which contribution of the relevant manuscript has been expected but not yet made: Australia, Brunei Darulssalam, Indonesia, Iraq, Papua New Guinea, and Thailand. We ask again the expected authors in these countries, or someone who may relieve them for the contribution, to prepare manuscript entitled "Chemical Education in my country".
In addition there are two countries which recently joined FACS: Mongolia and Russia. We also ask the educational divisions or relevant groups in the chemical societies of these countries to prepare the manuscript entitled "Chemical Education in my country" and contribute it to ACEN either by themselves or by designating someone as author(s).
The guideline for preparing the manuscript is shown in the CEAP web page (URL = http://www.t.soka.ac.jp/chem/CEAP/new_guidelinewww.html).
Also there may be changes in the countries those who already contributed for the issue during these three or four years after preparation of the contents. Addition or correction will be welcome.
Contributions will be disseminated in html files, as well as distributed as PDF documents when possible.
(3) Data bases and articles which are considered to contribute to the advancement of chemical education, in particular, in the Asian-Pacific region on the international basis.
This include the following categories:
- Data base on Chemical Education
- Data base useful for Teaching and Learning Chemistry
- Teaching Materials and Softwares
- Teaching Strategies and Techniques
- Communication among Chemical Educators
- Practices in classroom
- Commentaries and Proposals
The guideline for preparing the manuscript is shown in the ACEN web page (URL = http://www.t.soka.ac.jp/chem/acen/note.html).
The subsidy ranges from US$ 100 to 300 per work (or series
of works), depending on the volume and quality of the contents.
The amount for each contribution will be decided by project ACEN
directors. As a reference, contributions to "Chemical Education
in Asia-Pacific" ( ca. twenty A4 printed pages each) each
corresponded to US$ 300 subsidy.
You might consider that the amount is not balanced with the effort of author(s), but please note that there are only limited amount available for the project ACEN and we would like to subsidize as many works as possible.

Reporter is a person who willingly plays a role of sending valuable information in or around your country, such as internatinal meetings, workshops, or events, contributing a report on recent situations or events on chemical education, or recommending contributions by others to ACEN. Although the status as a reporter is voluntary, contributions from, or recommended by, a reporter will be processed in higher priority.
Please do not hesitate to contribute to ACEN and for the
development of chemical education in Asian-Pacific region!
