The International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education (IJARE) is dedicated to advancing the knowledge and practices of non-competitive human aquatic professionals worldwide.

This peer-reviewed scholarly quarterly 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.

Due to the open access and electronic nature of the International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education, we are welcoming proposals from reputable organizations and agencies for "special issues." Contact the Editor if you would like to explore a topic-based special issue.
