The Journal of Museum Education

The Museum Education Roundtable is proud to serve the field through publication of Journal of Museum Education (JME).

The JME is an international, peer-reviewed publication exploring and reporting on theory, training, and practice in the museum education field. Published 4 times a year, each issue features journal articles–written by practitioners and scholars–that explore current research and trends in the field, case studies, reviews, as well as special topics in themed, guest-edited sections.

The JME began publishing in 1973 as Roundtable Reports. Since 1985, MER has published the journal as Journal of Museum Education. MER members receive print and digital access to the Journal as a benefit of membership. Previews of the JME are available below, and the full archive is available through Taylor & Francis, the JME’s publisher.

Online access by MER members is provided by logging on to our website and selecting an issue below, which will redirect to Taylor & Francis. If you are not a member, you can purchase individual articles through the publisher–or please join MER for full access.
