Focus and Scope

The Journal of Qualitative Research in Sports Studies presents a valuable opportunity for students; undergraduates and postgraduates alike to write mentored publications of their research activities within the sport’s world. The papers are externally reviewed by academics from institutions (UK and overseas) who have an interest in researching sport and physical education. They also share a similar vision for raising confidence in student’s writing and encouraging greater involvement with researching sport from a qualitative standpoint. Towards these ends the journal identifies the central aims below, which the Editorial Board hope the reader will recognise as educationally valuable in terms of academic quality and student centred support: 
(a) To showcase and share student research at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. 
(b) Through a process of mentoring and external review, help to improve student’s confidence to present their ideas formally. 
(c) To create a contemporary resource of qualitative research within the sport’s world which is accessible to students and informs their ongoing investigations. 
(d) To create a stage for experimental designs in qualitative research which are exciting, engaging and pedagogically stimulating for the study of sport.

Please consider that there is an open call for papers and potential submitters are encouraged to contact the Editor with their ideas. Guidelines for layout and referencing are detailed in the opening pages of each journal. Deadlines for submission should be discussed with the Editor as they may be determined by a number of factors including the degree of mentoring required, reviewing possibilities and general readiness of the article for publication. Please use earlier volumes as a guide to context, layout and appropriateness of content, and then, contact the Editor on capalmer@uclan.ac.uk.
How it works: in many cases papers are dual authored; usually by the student who is first named with a mentor or supervisor as co-author. This helps to preserve both the identity of the original work and the integrity of the reviewing process. Most importantly, it reflects the student-teacher relationship in supported research and mentored writing, which as a pedagogical principle is at the heart of what this journal is about. However, there are a number of sole-authored papers appearing as ‘cameo’ contributions, usually the last paper in a volume, in which some especial wisdom may be imparted to help enrich or invigorate student mentored writing. More recently, other exceptions to the dual authoring rule have come from authors whose writing has been free of supervision and mentoring, usually post-doctoral and above, which may be a healthy sign of evolution in JQRSS in serving its readership and application of its contents.
Reviews of various forms are also invited for publication and may be sole authored by students or supported by a mentor. The aim of a review in this journal is that the criticisms offered are usefully directed at teaching and learning in some way and are therefore subject to editorial control. The norm in many journals is to feature book reviews predominantly, however, because of the mandate for this journal we wish to extend the act of reviewing to include reviews of not only books but, book chapters and journal articles. It is hoped that this may encourage students and staff to share their ideas by focusing more closely, and perhaps more usefully, on a single source of information rather than offering general comment about a large body work which in itself may be more deserving of deeper critical review elsewhere. Reviews would typically be 500-1000 words in length. Please contact the Editor if you wish to submit a review.
