For the purposes of the EJSS , ’sport’ is defined inclusively to refer to all forms of human movement that aim to maintain or improve physical and mental well-being, create or improve social relationships, or obtain results in competition at all levels. Defined thus, the Journal publishes articles from across the disciplinary spectrum concerning inter alia the motivation, attitudes, values, responses, adaptations, performance and health-related aspects of persons engaged in sport.
