The objective of IPSE is to provide a forum for the publication of scientific articles in the field of inquiry-based science education with young children (ages 3-11). In pursuit of this objective, the journal not only publishes high quality research papers but also ensures that the published papers achieve broad international distribution.

The journal publishes research papers as well as review articles and book reviews. Furthermore, it has a special 'inquiry notes' section where practising primary teachers can share their experiences with the application of IBSE in their classrooms. Research papers and review articles will be subjected to double-blinded peer review.
