ASERA conducts an annual conference for science educators, and publishes top journal Research In Science Education (RISE).
ASERA has links with international research associations such as the European Science Education Research Association (ESERA), the US-based NARST and the International Council of Associations for Science Education (ICASE). It is also linked with classroom science teachers through the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA) and the state and territory science teachers associations, and to the New Zealand Association of Science Educators (NZASE).
