Abstract

This is the first issue of the Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership following the journal advisory group's approval of submission and review criteria for two new submission categories. Similar to its original intent, the journal continues to address many different aspects of outdoor recreation, education, and leadership. As discussed in the last issue, the formal creation of the new categories helps delineate differences and assists authors and reviewers. The three submission categories now include:1) Regular Papers: quantitative and/or qualitative research and conceptual or theoretical discussions (generally 20-30 double-spaced pages including all references, tables, and figures)2) Essays, Practices, and Commentaries [new] (generally 8-10 double-spaced pages including all references, tables, and figures)3) Research Notes [new] (generally 8-10 double-spaced pages including all references, tables, and figures).
