Sports Science

The journals Stadion (Stadium) and Zeitschrift für sportpädagogische Forschung (Journal for research in sport pedagogy) as well as the series Brennpunkte der Sportwissenschaft (Focal points of sports science) are three of the most important sports science publication formats in the program of Academia Publishing.

In addition to contributions on the history of sport, scientific studies on current discourses such as the project “Schulsport 2020” (School Sport 2020), which was funded by the “Qualitätsoffensive Lehrerbildung” (Quality Initiative for Teacher Education), can also be found here. The sports science program area is supplemented by the publisher’s own series Academia Sport and the sports education series Bewegtes Lernen (Moving Learning) edited by Christina Müller (University of Leipzig).
