Because of their interactive nature, and/or of the rather frequent presence of others during practice, sports and physical activities represent a context susceptible to numerous and various modalities of social influence. This special issue will present an update on the psychological and behavioral processes through which social influence may operate – albeit via an interpersonal relationship (e.g., coach-athlete, teacher-student, parent-child), or due to the appurtenance to certain social categories (e.g., gender, age) – in the field of sport, exercise, and physical activity. Both literature review on theoretical approaches or research questions, and articles presenting original results from empirical studies, will be welcomed. Proposals for articles are to be up-loaded the submission platform of the journal. Authors have to follow the instructions to authors.

Submission Deadline: December 30th 2019

This special issue will address the relationship between public (State, communities) and private (companies, associations) operators and the changes which occurred in this area.

Whether competitive or party sport events, tourism linked to physical activities, proximity sport events, dedicated infrastructures, this thematic issue aims to show the observed operative methods and the questions raised by the public-private pair, the ones it raises and the ones it will raise in the future in France and other countries.
