Researching Education and the Environment
Retrospect and Prospect
Edited by Alan Reid, William Scott
Published February 20th 2009 by Routledge – 360 pages
Previously published as a special issue of Environmental Education Research, this collection includes papers published in the first 10 years of the journal, together with a series of specially commissioned critical vignettes that address the kinds of research that the journal attracts and wider aspects of the journal's work over that time.
Contributors and editors also look ahead to the next ten years, discussing six major themes within contemporary research that require close scrutiny:
For each theme, two papers published by the journal in the first ten years are re-printed and two researchers review the issues they raise, giving readers a broad and future-facing overview of the development of the field today.
