Dear friends and colleagues,

Hello, and welcome to the first issue of the Museumedu Journal, publication from the Museum Education and Research Laboratory at the University of Thessaly Greece. Museumedu 1, Museums and Education – Theory and Practice: Music, Dance, Mathematics, was published as the first and experimental issue in Spring 2015. The publication of an online international journal has been one of the main objectives of the Museum Education and Research Laboratory (MERLab), in line with its other publication activities with the aim to provide a space for international dialogue on museum education, and discussion over research, theory and practice related to a variety of educational practices within (broadly conceived) cultural environments around the world.


(For the MERLab activities see: .)


Museumedu Journal is being published annually, on special themes that are announced 18 months in advance, through a Call for Papers. Beyond the particular theme of each volume, each issue may include papers over other themes, since basic aim is to provide a platform for dialogue among research work, practical applications and experiences. Submission of papers and suggestions for the editing of special issues should be sent to the following e-mail addresses: Irene Nakou , Niki Nikonanou and Panagiotis Kanellopoulos
