Qualitative Research in Sport, Exercise and Health is a landmark publication – it is the first international journal solely dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of qualitative research in the sport, exercise, and health sciences. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: Pleasure and danger: a running-woman in ‘public’ space by Jacquelyn Allen-Collinson (open access).
Described by the publisher as an array of research project abstracts, Exploring Research in Sports Coaching and Pedagogy: Context and Contingency (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, edited by Charles L. T. Corsby & Christian N. Edwards), comprises five parts and 19 chapters over a mere 187 pages.
