Sport, Leisure and Tourism aims to showcase high-quality research that bridges the social sciences, humanities, business and sport sciences. Our aim is to present innovative research that brings together diverse disciplinary approaches and subject areas, highlighting the value of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work within the areas of sport, leisure and tourism.
We aim to consider historical, social, cultural, political, geographical and economics of sport, leisure and tourism in, and for, communities, cities and countries. We particularly welcome papers that engage with innovative methodologies, and both applied and critical studies that interrogate policy, governance, development, and management in aspects of sport, leisure and tourism. Ultimately, we seek to catalyze new ideas and approaches to research in sport, leisure, and tourism that have the potential to shift paradigms. The section will consider research defined as empirical, theoretical, strategic, applied, or policy-focused as having equal standing.
Examples of the kind of work we would like to attract include:
Indexed in: Google Scholar, CrossRef
PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Sport, Leisure and Tourism welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Erratum, General Commentary, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Brief, Review and Specialty Grand Challenge.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Sport, Leisure and Tourism, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Sport, Leisure and Tourism will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Sports and Active Living.
