The Research Process in Sport, Exercise and Health fills an
important gap in the research methods literature. Conventional
research methods textbooks focus on theory and descriptions of
hypothetical techniques, while the peer-reviewed research
literature is mainly concerned with discussion of data and the
significance of results. In this book, a team of successful
researchers from across the full range of sub-disciplines in sport,
exercise and health discuss real pieces of research, describing the
processes they went through, the decisions that they made, the
problems they encountered and the things they would have done
differently. As a result, the book goes further than any other in
bringing the research process to life, helping students identify
potential issues and problems with their own research right at the
beginning of the process.
The book covers the whole span of the research process,
- identifying the research problem
- justifying the research question
- choosing an appropriate method
- data collection and analysis
- identifying a studyOCOs contribution to knowledge and/or
- disseminating results.
Featuring real-world studies from sport psychology,
biomechanics, sports coaching, ethics in sport, sports marketing,
health studies, sport sociology, performance analysis, and strength
and conditioning, the book is an essential companion for research
methods courses or dissertations on any sport or exercise degree
