Journal of Outdoor, Recreation, Education Leadership (JOREL)

The JOREL is the only peer-reviewed journal published in the United States with a specific focus on the areas of outdoor recreation, education, and leadership. This collaborative effort between the Association for Outdoor Recreation and Education, the Wilderness Education Association, and the Western Kentucky University Research Foundation, the journal focuses on improving research and practice and reducing the disparity between the two in the represented disciplines.
