Southern African Journal for Environmental Education

The Southern African Journal of Environmental Education (SAJEE) is an internationally refereed journal published online. The journal is published by the Environmental Education Association of Southern Africa (EEASA).

The SAJEE aims to publish and report on a wide range of aspects relating to Environmental Education, Ethics and Action in southern Africa and elsewhere. The journal seeks to further the study and practice of environmental education by providing a forum for researchers, scholars, practitioners and policy makers. The journal aims to carry papers reflecting the diversity of environmental education practice in southern Africa, and includes conference reviews and keynote papers, retrospective analyses of activities or trends in a particular field, commentaries on policy issues, comparative aspects of an environmental education, environmental ethics or environmental action issue, and critical reviews of environmental education, ethics and action in a particular country or context.

SAJEE statistics supplied by Africa Journals Online


August marked 100 000 downloads of SAJEE articles across the globe! The graph shows a peak in July relating to the Vol 36(1) publication. In total the article downloads from January 2017 to August 2020 is 100 370, with a steady increase since 2017.

This year Associate Professor Lausanne Olvitt and Dr ‪Muchaiteyi Togo ended their five-year contribution as Deputy Editors of SAJEE. In this period, 69 754 SAJEE article publications were downloaded globally, as recorded from January 2017 when the analytics were first introduced. We sincerely thank Mucha and Lausanne for the many hours of editorial work, and the author support workshops they ran at several EEASA conferences.

These figures demonstrate the value of making the EEASA journal electronically available as an open-source publication, and the reach of the Journal. EEASA can be very proud of the SAJEE download record from around the world.

Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)

In January 2020 SAJEE was accepted for indexing on the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The DOAJ is an independent database of open access journals focused on fields of Science, Technology, Medicine, Social Sciences and Humanities. It originates from the first Nordic Conference on Scholarly Communication in 2002. The database was initially maintained by Lund University, after which the Infrastructure Services for Open Access assumed management of this international resource.  All 36 volumes of SAJEE are now indexed on DOAJ for further dissemination and reach in readership on an open-access basis. SAJEE is what is known as a “diamond open access” journal, meaning neither authors nor readers have to pay to publish or read the works in the journal. For this we have EEASA to thank, the tireless work of the team members, and the free platform provided by the African Journals Online, which is also sponsored by Scandinavian donors.
