Special Edition, Diversity in Aquatics
The International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education (IJARE)
The International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education (IJARE) is dedicated to advancing the knowledge and practices of human aquatic professionals worldwide. This peer-reviewed quarterly scholarly journal publishes significant non-competitive evidence-based human aquatic research findings, articulates unique and innovative
ideas in aquatics, challenges current practices and proposed changes, and disseminates information about the latest and best use of aquatic equipment, facilities, and practices. The journal typically does not publish articles either about nonhuman aspects of aquatics or on topics primarily focused on improving performance in competitive aquatic sports such as swimming, diving, water polo, and sailing. IJARE’s mission is to advance original empirical research as well as educational articles focusing on a wide variety of noncompetitive aquatic topics.
IJARE publishes empirical research and educational topics focusing on a variety of human noncompetitive aquatic topics including but not limited to water safety, drowning prevention, water competency, lifesaving/lifeguarding, aquatic facility design and operation, aquatic legal and risk management, aquatic recreation, and the learning and teaching of aquatic knowledge and skills to improve the quality of life through aquatic physical activity.
