The Visitor Studies Association (VSA) is a membership organization dedicated to understanding and enhancing learning experiences in informal settings through research, evaluation, and dialogue. We offer an array of services designed to foster evidence-based practice, including an annual conference, professional development workshops, and the peer-reviewed journal Visitor Studies. Through these and other activities, we help researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, organizational leaders, and funders advance the field of informal learning.
Visitor Studies is the bi-annual, peer-reviewed journal of VSA. Our Publications Archive contains the entire run of Visitor Studies and other VSA publications. Learn more.
