Leisure Studies is a leading international journal that publishes innovative theoretically-informed, methodologically rigorous, empirical, conceptual and applied leisure research within the Social Sciences and Humanities. The journal publishes qualitative and quantitative research which critically analyses both the creation and consumption of leisure, including sport, travel and tourism, hospitality, media (including digital media), events, heritage, and the arts. Articles which examine the inter-relationships between leisure and work, civic engagement, health and wellbeing, major resources of social inequality and forms of social (in)justice are also published. Reflecting the journal’s concern with developing culturally diverse and nuanced understandings of leisure, research which examines leisure in the Global South is welcomed alongside studies of leisure in the Global North.
Leisure Studies is the journal of the Leisure Studies Association. A special rate is available to members of the Association and membership details can be obtained from Routledge Customer Services, Sheepen Place, Colchester, Essex, CO3 3LP, UK.
