The Journal of Outdoor Recreation Study is an academic journal published by The Outdoor Recreation Association of R.O.C. This journal publishes studies covering outdoor recreational research and practical techniques, and welcomes scholars local or abroad to submit their research.

Recently, the journal has started to emphasize research areas such as leisure and recreation management and tourism. The subjects of the journal are mainly recreational psychology and behavior and recreation resources. Submissions on eco-tourism and tourism are increasing as well.
