With a focus on social science scholarship, Curriculum Studies in Health and Physical Education publishes conceptually rich contributions in all areas of health and physical education, including those derived from empirical, philosophical, sociological, and/or policy-related investigations.
Curriculum Studies in Health and Physical Education invites submission of papers of approximately 7000 words that focus on the forms, contents and contexts of health and physical education as they relate to schools, universities and other forms of educational practice. The journal welcomes original contributions that analyse the ways in which the social and institutional conditions of education and schooling interact with the field of health and physical education and associated fields, such as outdoor education, recreation and sport.
The “What are you reading?” review section is an invitation to (early-mid career) researchers to review a body of scholarly work (book, collection of chapters etc) that they believe is of significance to theirs/others ongoing research in fields connected to the Aims and Scope of the Journal.
More specifically, we are inviting potential reviewers to focus on scholarly works that might stimulate new directions for inquiry and think afresh what we take for granted about the familiar features of research related to HPE curriculum (be it theoretical or methodologically framed). We envisage that the “What are you reading?” review section will provide resources for academics at various stages of their careers to continuously grapple with what else research and education related to HPE might do or become.
