An OE article could not obtain that number of citations even if every article from 2000 in JAEOL, the JEE, and the AJOE cited it.
We collected citations to articles in the JAEOL, JEE, AJOE, New Zealand Journal of Outdoor Education (NZJOE), Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership (JOREL), and the papers from the Coalition for Education in the Outdoors (CEO) conferences.
For JAEOL, AJOE, and OE we chose the 10 most-cited papers.
Table 3 shows the percentage of citations attributed to the 10 most-cited articles in JAEOL, AJOE, and JEE, which accounted for 32%, 37%, and 18% of the total citations to articles in each journal, respectively, for articles published 2000-2013.
To understand this further, we looked at citations to the 10 most-cited articles in JAEOL, AJOE, and JEE in each of those journals (Table 5, Table 6, and Table 7--see pages 17 and 18); we called the sum of the three contributions "OE impact," representing citation by peers in OE journals.
In contrast, citations from AJOE contributed only weakly to citations of AJOE articles--AJOE articles were cited by the OE journals in very similar proportions to JAEOL articles, with both citations by JAEOL and JEE articles outnumbering those by AJOE articles.
I am a little puzzled that articles with titles such as "Reinvigorating Our Love of Our Home Range: Exploring the Connections Between Sense of Place and Outdoor Education" (Stewart, 2003), "Decolonising Encounters With the Murray River: Building Place Responsive Outdoor Education" (Stewart, 2004b), "Playing With an Unstoppable Force: Paddling, River-Places and Outdoor Education" (Wattchow, 2007), and "Moving on an Effortless Journey: Paddling, RiverPlaces and Outdoor Education" (Wattchow, 2008), all of which were published in AJOE, did not signal the need for a code that indicated their foci on particular places.
I began this essay by reference to the rebranding of Australian Journal of Outdoor Education (AJOE) as Journal of Outdoor and Environmental Education (JOEE), and I return to it here, because I fear that although something has been gained by adding "environmental education," something has been lost by deleting "Australian" as a marker of place-consciousness (having a national title in a journal has never discouraged international contributors or readers, as is evident from the constituencies that contribute to AJEE, CJEE, and SAJEE).
when Brookes (1989) raised the question of the relationships of outdoor and environmental education in AJEE, there were few opportunities for publishing outdoor education research elsewhere: AJOE did not begin to publish refereed research papers until 1998, and I suspect that it took some time for it to become accepted as an equivalent to established international journals, which by that time included not only the long established Journal of Environmental Education (JEE) and Journal of Experiential Education (JExpEd), but also the Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning (JAEOL), the Canadian Journal of Environmental Education (CJEE), Environmental Education Research (EER), and the Southern African Journal of Environmental Education (SAJEE).
For example, Thomas, Potter, and Allison's (2009) comparative study of papers published in AJOE, Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning (JAEOL), and Journal of Experiential Education (JExpEd) between 1998 and 2007 does not code papers by reference to categories that readily indicate the extent to which they foreground the specificities of place, a point to which I return in a later section of this essay.
Although AJOE has a shorter history (1995-2016), they share a tendency towards an increasing emphasis on research as they have matured (see N.
