11th World Environmental Education Congress
Building Bridges in Times of Climate Urgency
14-18 March 2022 PragueCZECH REPUBLIC


From submission to manuscript: publication opportunities for our participants

Hundreds of participants present their research in every World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC). We want to make this exciting source of research and experience available for the broad scientific community. Thus, we look to extend the publication opportunity for the presenting authors beyond the scope of the conference proceeding. 

In the cooperation with our Internal Scientific Committee, publishers, and other partners, we arrange special issues (SI) in a broad set of scientific journals linked with the 11thWEEC. Based on this, we encourage the authors to transform their submission into a manuscript. While the success in WEEC-related reviewing does not guarantee success in the journals’ review; there is a good chance the editors will accept the high-scored submissions.

If you find this opportunity attractive, look at the list of the already opened calls (a few more journals are in consideration). Please, consider the journals varies a lot in their focus, calls, publication fee (for some), status, etc. Find the one most fitting to your submission and proceed with your manuscript. We are looking forward to reading your submission in the journal of your choice!

Where you can submit your WEEC-related manuscript?

There is the list of already arranged special issues. Other journal are to be add soon!

Éducation relative à l’environnement : Regards - Recherches - Réflexions 

The academic journal " Éducation relative à l’environnement : Regards - Recherches - Réflexions " is open to publishing articles that have been presented at the Prague Congress - WEEC Network 2022. As the journal is French-speaking, the proposed articles must be translated into French and respect our publication guidelines. As the papers selected for this conference have been subjected to a rigorous selection process, authors can send their paper directly to us. Each paper is peer-reviewed.
Papers related to the Congress may be included in the Varia issue of the journal which will be published at the end of 2022. Articles should be sent to us before May 10, 2022. As this will be a Varia issue and not a thematic issue, an editorial could contextualize the Congress publications. This editorial could be written in French by a WEEC official.
