The International Journal for

Research and Development in Environmental Education


The International Journal for Research and Development in Environmental Education is an International refereed journal which publishes original research papers and reports on all aspects of environmental education from throughout the world dealing with environment and educational research. The journal publishes regular papers and special issues on specific topics of interest to international audiences of educational researchers. The purpose of the journal is to help advance understanding of environmental and sustainability education through a focus on papers reporting research and development activities. The journal also carries more diverse papers including conference reviews, retrospective analyses of activities in a particular field, critical commentaries on policy issues and comparative aspects of an environmental education issue. Its main aim is to allow specialists working in these areas the opportunity of publishing their findings for the benefit of institutions, academicians, researchers and students.

It is hoped that the journal will encourage high quality research that will lead to more effective practices, behaviours and curricula in environment and science education. The journal is a bi-annual journal published in print version in the month of June and December. The criteria for acceptance of papers are that they are analytical and critical; that the ideas being discussed are transferable to other educational systems and cultures; and that they are accessible to an international audience. All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.
