AMEA Call for special issue of “Marine education in Asia”

Posted By Jennifer Magnusson, Thursday, February 22, 2018

AMEA LogoIn order to strengthen Asia’s regional marine education academic research, enhance interaction from marine educators, communicate research outcomes, and extend the influence of global marine education, the Asia Marine Educators Association (AMEA) established a research committee in 2017 and decided to publish an academic journal. The first publication will be the special issue of Higher Education Research of Ocean University of China (HEROUC). The first special issue call for topics includes:

  1. Marine education theory research
  2. Academic marine education activities research
  3. National or regional marine education practices
  4. National or regional marine education comparative research
  5. Ocean literacy or marine education evaluation research
  6. National or regional marine education curriculum
  7. National or regional marine education policy
  8. Other research related to marine education or ocean literacy

We expect the first AMEA publication to showcase information about Asia’s marine education, and inspire educators to exchange knowledge about promoting marine education in their countries. This special issue is estimated to comprise 10-12 papers on marine education practices and policy from different countries, and will be printed as hard copies. We will share the journal at the 2018 NMEA conference in Long Beach, CA. The next step of the research committee is to establish the Asia Marine Education Journal, which will be formally announced at the 2019 AMEA conference in China.
