Celebrating the Past and Looking Ahead: Editors' Notes


  • Andrew J. Bobilya Western Carolina University
  • Raymond A. Poff Western Kentucky University


This year, 2014, the Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership celebrates its fifth anniversary. The first issue was published in the first half of 2009 under the editorial leadership of Dr. Aram Attarian. Now in our 16th issue, the papers published in JOREL continue to further our understanding of outdoor recreation, education, and leadership. This publication is successfully disseminating high quality papers in a timely manner. We hope the two recently announced submission categories (Essays, Practices, and Commentaries; and Research Notes) will facilitate additional publication opportunities for a wider range of manuscript types.
