Learning about the scientific education systems in the global context is of utmost importance now for two reasons. Firstly, the academic community is now international. It is no longer limited to top universities, as the mobility of staff and students is very common even in remote places. Secondly, education systems need to continually evolve in order to cope with the market demand. Contrary to the past when the pioneering countries were the most innovative ones, now emerging economies are more eager to push the boundaries of innovative education. Here, an overall picture of the whole field is provided. Moreover, the entire collection is indeed an encyclopedia of science education, and can be used as a resource for global education.
