Journal of Outdoor and Environmental Education (JOEE)

The Journal's name was changed from Australian Journal of Outdoor Education (AJOE) in 2016.

The Australian Journal of Outdoor Education (AJOE) is published approximately twice a year and sent to members of organisations affiliated with the Outdoor Council of Australia, individual subscribers, and institutional subscribers. It has both Australian and overseas audiences, although the majority of readers are Australian. Approximately 800 copies are produced per issue.


To view past issues of the JOEE click here. 


To contact the Editor or view details of the Editorial Board click here. 


If you would like to submit a manuscript to the AJOE please refer to the information page Guidelines and information to prospective AJOE authors here. 


Goals of the JOEE


The uniqueness of JOEE is its ability to meet the needs of a wide cross section of readers whether they be classroom teachers, academics or practitioners in the field. The JOEE attempts to provide clear links between theory, research and practice. 


Therefore our goals are to: 
(a) Provide balanced and in-depth investigation of outdoor education practices and theories in a variety of educational and recreational contexts. 
(b) Enhance understanding of outdoor education and recreation issues in relation to their wider educational, recreational and social contexts. 
(c) Help readers keep abreast of current outdoor education research. 
(d) Examine and present research with a view as to how it might be implemented for classroom teachers and practitioners as researchers. 
(e) Provide a forum in which outdoor education and outdoor recreation professionals from all settings can exchange and discuss ideas and practices relevant to their work.

The full listing of available articles can be seen by selecting the AJOE from the list of journals on the following page http://cunningham.acer.edu.au/dbtw-wpd/sample/journals_edresearch.htm. 


If an organisation or institution wants to organise an online subscription to the Australian Journal of Outdoor Education, which includes the last 6 editions as well as future editions, this is best done by contacting the librarian responsible for online subscriptions at your institution.
