The Journal of Geoscience Education (JGE) of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) has been published since 1951. Over its 68-year history, JGE has had twelve editors, several publishers, and two names. It began as the publication of record of NAGT, and annual reports and announcements were printed regularly in addition to articles; today, NAGT makes its officers' annual reports available online and produces an electronic newsletter. The nature of the content has evolved as the discipline of geoscience education research has emerged and grown. More than fifteen theme issues have covered topics like climate literacy, preparing future teachers, teaching in the field and in the urban environment, and broadening access and participation.

JGE continues to evolve today in response to the needs of the community. The editors are seeking input from you about possible additions to the journal, including regular topical columns, book reviews, and highlights from research published elsewhere.
