Aside from being a common knowledge, there is also a wealth of research that demonstrates that regular physical activity is beneficial for our body; reducing the risk that we will develop serious health conditions such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, or diabetes. There is now a wide breadth of research that leads to real-world outcomes for everyone – from professional athletes and coaches, to those undertaking exercise to maintain health or overcome specific health conditions. However, more work is required to fully understand the sport-exercise-mental health paradigm, which is the focus of this special issue.
Psychreg Journal of Psychology (PJP) welcomes submissions from all researchers in psychology and allied fields and particularly encourages submissions from postgraduate researchers.
The special issue, which will be guest edited by Professor Andrew Lane, is open to the use of diverse methodological approaches. Manuscripts that will be considered for publication will present results from high quality empirical research, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and perspective pieces concerning sport and exercise.
Submissions may present new research, critical theory, or best practice; and could highlight practical lessons learned from experience in different settings, or countries. Submission should include an abstract of no more than 250 words.
Like most journals, PJP has a policy of double-blind peer review, whereby the reviewers do not know the authors, and the authors do not know the reviewers.
As a free-to-publish publication, PJP’s core mission is to provide a genuine platform for knowledge sharing, so that we can support researchers, academics, and students in disseminating their works.
