In 1996 the Association launched the Southern African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education. Its sixth volume in 2002 used just “African” as its identity to reflect the association’s liaison with the African Forum for Children’s Literacy in Science and Technology (AFCLIST) and to promote publication and reviewing/mentoring skills throughout the continent of Africa. Inspirational individual leadership was also very important in New Zealand, where Roger Osborne, a lecturer in first year physics at Waikato University in Hamilton, was alarmed by the quality of the science learning his students were bringing from school to their further study of physics.

Research training. In his presidential year David Treagust (2000) addressed the development of NARST as an international research community. He used six measures – the structural one of name and mission, and five participatory ones: leadership positions, membership papers and citations in JRST, conference attendance, and US presence internationally. He was ‘very enthused by the general findings of this analysis’ (p. 6), since they all, in their various ways indicated that the Association was, indeed, becoming a more international research community.
