Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Sport and Psychosocial Health/Well-being after the COVID-19 Lockdown” – Volume II. Call ends January 31, 2023
The goal of this Research Topic is to investigate: (1) various aspects of association between active living (e.g., physical activity, exercise, sport) and psychosocial health outcomes (e.g., social well-being, social health, depressive symptoms, quality of life, life satisfaction, happiness, loneliness, etc.) as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and (2) effectiveness of various new/existing means (e.g., social media platform, virtual sport competitions, etc.) on active living and psychosocial health outcomes.
The Research Topic ‘Sport, Power and Policies’ invites contributors to consider the complex relationships between Sport, the exercise of ‘Soft Power’ and the impact on government policies in a contemporary context, although historical perspectives and case studies will also be considered. The research aims to take a fresh look at this seminal concept from the mid-1990s in the light of the changing geopolitical landscape. We hope to draw in contributions from a range of sports, including football, cricket, rugby, athletics, et al.

Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “The Growth of Social Entrepreneurship in the Global Sport Industry”. Call ends December 1, 2022
As social entrepreneurship continues to evolve in the sport industry, there is a need for conducting and disseminating research to further this emerging area, as well as educate those unfamiliar with the importance of this concept. The goal of this call is to publish research that identifies the characteristics and models of social entrepreneurship and how those concepts apply to the sport industry.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “The impact of COVID-19 on Social Inequalities in Sport and Physical Activity”. Call ends November 1, 2022
The goal of the collection is to bring together research that explores the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the nature and extent of the social inequalities that exist in sport and physical activity settings. Such research can identify specific problems that need to be addressed by organisations and practitioners involved in promoting physical activity to social groups both in-person and online who have historically low participation levels and those who have been particularly effected by the pandemic social conditions.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Volume II: Traditional Sporting Games and Play in Physical Education: Enhancing Cultural Diversity, Emotional Well-Being, Interpersonal Relationships and Intelligent Decisions”. Call...
Previous scientific findings reinforce the importance of traditional sporting games (TSGs) in fostering experiences of integral well-being or multimodal learning (emotional, relational, or decisional). TSGs, such as ball games, skittles games, team games (dodge ball, fox, chicken, snake, cops and robbers) and tag games are also an excellent resource for PE teachers. We expect to receive manuscripts based on the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) classification in order to find common tactical principles.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “The Application of Experimental Research in Sport Management, Marketing and Business” | Call ends January 1, 2022
Within the fields of sport management, marketing, and business, experimental studies have been steadily gaining in popularity. However, the use of experiments is still limited among sport research compared to other fields. Although observational studies have formed the foundation of sport research, experimental studies have some distinct advantages over observational studies, primarily the ability to draw stronger causal conclusions about the effects of variables on behaviors, attitudes, and intentions.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Thinking and Doing Intersectionality in Sociology of Sport” | Call ends September 30, 2021
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and its intersectional impacts, as well as the recent intensification of activism and protest related to racialized and gendered injustices, the moment is ripe to revisit and reflect on the concept of intersectionality, including within the field of sociology of sport. We ask: How has intersectional theorizing and analysis figured within sociology of sport to date? We are encouraging contributors to view this as a unique opportunity to create a collection that is accessible and relevant to practitioners in sport.

Manuscripts of all methodological approaches including conceptual papers will be considered for publication. Inter-disciplinary research is encouraged.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Shaping the Social Value of Events: Strategy, Processes, Outcomes” | Call ends September 24, 2021
The aim of this call for papers is to collect contributions that can build an integrated inter-disciplinary outlook of how the social value of events can be strategically fostered, negotiated, reconstructed and amplified. It seeks out cross- inter- and trans-disciplinary contributions that shed light on the multi-layered processes shaping the social value of events and potential for synergies between different event genres, purposes or outcomes that can magnify their overall social value for host communities.
