RIGEO: Review of International Geographical Education Online
Review of International Geographical Education Online (RIGEO) is an international online refereed geographical education journal which welcomes articles on all aspects of geographical education at all levels of the education system.
RIGEO seeks to build a bridge between geography teachers, researchers, policy makers, and practitioners to help focus on best practices in learning, teaching, training, curriculum and publications in geographical education.
RIGEO is published twice a year and provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public will support a greater exchange of geographical education knowledge on an international scale.
One of our aims by founding this journal is to add a synergy in international geographic education. Especially in teaching geography 'synergy' comes through not only within geographical educators but also the teaching of ecological and environmental topics in co-operation with the science educators and teachers (where scientific matters are involved) and with the economics/commercial educators where matters of organisation/ finance/ social conditions are involved. Thus, RIGEO seeks to build bridge between geography and other related practicing educators, researchers, policymakers and practitioners to help focus on best practices in learning, teaching, training, curriculum, textbooks etc.
Issue One: January 2011
The first issue of RIGEO was published in January 2011. The editorial panel welcomes contributions for future issues from geography education professionals around the world.
As RIGEO has an international scope, authors are encouraged to focus on the underlying aspects of their research that make the work relevant for the larger community of geography educators and policymakers in a global dimension.
If you would like to contribute a paper, or if you would like to get involved in RIGEO's council or committees, please contact the journal editor Dr Eyüp Artvinli.
