About this Research Topic

Abstract Submission Deadline 05 October 2022
Manuscript Submission Deadline 01 February 2023

The discoveries made by scientists over the last years have contributed to exceptional advancements within the fast-growing field of Performance Science. As an interdisciplinary research field, Performance Science has the potential to bring together practitioners, scientists, and scientific methodologies from diverse research fields, including psychology, performing arts, sport science, human movement science, education, business and management. Across domains, Performance Science can provide insights into fundamental skills, psychological and physiological mechanisms, and outcomes of performance activities and experiences. In turn, scientific advances in Performance Science foster the development of innovative interventions tailored for key aspects of education, training, health, and well-being.

This Research Topic welcomes forward-looking contributions outlining recent developments and novel ideas within Performance Science. Authors are encouraged to shed light on the recent progress made across the field of Performance Science and address any potential challenges. Included work may focus on a wide range of phenomena, participants, and contexts: for example, from individuals’ cognitive functions and emotions to embodied interpersonal interactions; from solitary preparation to public performance and audience engagement; from one acting individual to an interacting dyad, an ensemble, or an entire profession; from a complete novice practitioner to a specialized world-leading expert. The goal of the present Research Topic is to serve as a compendium of basic and applied research in diverse performance domains such as the performing arts (e.g., music, dance, theater), sport and exercise, health sciences, educational sciences, and organizational/work contexts.

This Research Topic welcomes submissions describing both original empirical research, and theoretical/review articles belonging to any of the article types allowed for Frontiers in Psychology. The submissions need to present solid theoretical foundations and rigorous methodologies. The authors are required to discuss the interdisciplinary implications of the outcomes of their work, beyond their own expertise domain, and highlight the added value of their contribution to the field of performance science as a whole.

We invite particularly—but not exclusively—contributions within the following areas, as they manifest within high-skill environments:
• Performance, health, and well-being in performance environments
• Cognitive-motor interactions
• Stress and emotion
• Embodied cognition
• Group dynamics, communication, and interpersonal coordination
• Rhythm perception and production
• Multisensory integration
• Audience research
• Aesthetics
• Leadership and coaching
• Expertise and professional development

Keywords: performance science, performance psychology, arts, music, dance, theater, sport, exercise, expertise, leadership, business, management, organizational behavior, human movement science, education, health and well-being


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
