Quest's primary purpose is to publish manuscripts 1) that address issues and concerns relevant and meaningful to the field of kinesiology; 2) that are original research reports that address empirical questions that are contextualized within higher education and hold significance to a broad range of faculty and administrators in kinesiology; and 3) that provide a review of literature and/or research of interest to one or more sub-disciplines in kinesiology. Both theoretical and practice-based articles are considered. Quest serves a broad readership that includes academicians, teachers and administrators by providing a public forum for scholarly and creative thought about the profession. Quest is published four times a year, in March, June, September, and December. NAKHE members may access copies of Quest here. Information on how to submit articles to Quest is available here.
