Call for Papers

Conference themes: Continuing in the tradition of previous International Outdoor Education Research Conferences, the aim of this conference is to build on the social, cultural and critical dimensions of research and theorizing in diverse outdoor traditions, including: education (both learning and teaching), recreation, place, sustainability and therapy. Therefore, there is no specialized theme. The conference welcomes all abstracts that broadly enhance the understanding, practice and research of outdoor studies.

Call for abstracts: Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are now being accepted for the 9th IOERC. Presentations from various disciplinary angles, across a variety of themes, are welcome from researchers, practitioners and graduate students. Abstracts for posters and presentations should be up to 250 words long plus title (max. 25 words), 1 – 3 references, up to 5 key words and the details of all authors. All abstracts will be double-blind peer reviewed by members of the International Academic Committee or other subject-matter experts. Notification of abstract acceptance, rejection, or the need for revisions will be made by 01 December 2021. If revisions are required, those will need to be completed by 31 January 2022.

Submission deadline 01 December 2021. Please submit your proposal on-line here

Conference Proceedings: We will be publishing an e-book of conference abstracts, available at the conference.  These will have been peer reviewed in the process of abstract submission. In addition, in the coming months we will be discussing post-conference publication options (journal special issues) with a number of respected international publishers. In particular, JAEOL is expected to consider papers for emerging themes. Details will be shared as appropriate during the 9th IOERC.
