ASPP the best prof meetings for teaching?

ASPP may have more to offer teachers at their expensive annual meetings
but their refereed journal, Plant Physiology, is clearly not teaching
friendly. The ASPP website http://www.aspp.org/ lists the Instructions
for Contributors which restricts contributions to Plant Physiology to
research papers, i.e.

"Plant Physiology is an international journal open to papers of merit
dealing with all phases of experimental plant biology. Each manuscript
submitted to Plant Physiology must be an original research report that
has not been submitted elsewhere ..."

To my knowledge there has never been a teaching article in Plant
Physiology.

It would be nice if ASPP at least put all the ASPP teaching abstracts on
their website and gave the authors an opportunity to put their
poster/manuscript online as well. It would also be nice if all the past
Education Forum's from the ASPP Newsletter were on the website because
few libraries carry it.
