The Journal of Outdoor and Environmental Education (JOEE) is an international journal of the outdoor profession owned by the Outdoor Council of Australia and strongly supported by Outdoor Education Australia.

It continues the Australian Journal of Outdoor Education (AJOE).

The journal is published approximately twice a year and sent to subscribing members of state outdoor education associations in Australia, as well as individual and institutional standing order subscribers. It is also available through online content repositories such as Proquest and EBSCO.

The journal has an international authorship and readership.

The journal provides an academic forum in which empirical and non-empirical research concerning outdoor and environmental education can be shared and discussed.

The primary aim of the journal is to positively influence the development of outdoor and environmental education practice and theory.
