Quest's primary purpose is to publish manuscripts:
- that address issues and concerns relevant and meaningful to the field of kinesiology;
- 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
- that provide a review of the 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.
