Research Articles/Field Reports
News & Notes Items

Applied Environmental Education and Communication is a scholarly, peer-reviewed quarterly for both academics and practitioners. It presents the latest environmental developments in the fields of education, communication, social marketing, journalism, and behavioral science, as well as information on sustainability education, environmental interpretation, risk communication, public relations and outreach, environmental health communication, governmental and corporate public awareness, and environmental campaigns around the world.


Applied Environmental Education and Communication is accepting research articles and field reports for peer-review and possible publication.

Research Articles are based on original quantitative or qualitative research and are of particular relevance to practitioners in the field. For example, they may show how theories of learning or behavior change were applied in a project. The emphasis is always on what worked and what didn't in different situations and why. Maximum length of articles: 3,500 words.

Field Reports are factual accounts of items of interest such as emerging research or issues, analysis of major campaigns or trends in funding flows. Maximum length of articles: 3,500 words.

All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become property of the publisher. Submission of a manuscript to the journal is understood to imply that it or substantial parts of it have not been published or accepted for publication elsewhere and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

To Prepare Your Manuscript:

Manuscripts, including tables, figures, and references, should be prepared in accordance with the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th Edition. Please double-space text and number manuscript pages consecutively throughout the paper.

Illustrations submitted (line drawings, halftones, photos, photomicrographs, etc.) should be clean originals or digital files. Digital files are recommended for highest quality reproduction and should follow these guidelines:

  • 300 dpi or higher
  • sized to fit on journal page
  • EPS, TIFF, or PSD format only
  • submitted as separate files, not embedded in text files
Four-color illustrations will be considered for publication; however, the author will be required to bear the full cost involved in their printing and publication. The publisher has the right to refuse publication of color prints deemed unacceptable.

Tables and Figures
Tables and figures should not be embedded in the text, but should be included as separate sheets or files. A short descriptive title should appear above each table with a clear legend, and any footnotes suitably identified below. All units must be included. Figures should be completely labeled, taking into account necessary size reduction. Captions should be included on a separate sheet. All original figures should be clearly marked in pencil on the reverse side with the number, author's name, and top edge indicated.

One set of page proofs is sent to the designated author. Proofs should be carefully checked and returned within 48 hours.

Reprints and Complimentary Copies
The corresponding author of each article will receive one complete copy of the issue in which the article appears. Reprints of individual articles may be ordered from Taylor & Francis. A reprint order form will be included with page proofs.
