National Association for Kinesiology in Higher Education


quest.jpgQuest'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 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 yearly, in March, June, September, and December.

Sport & Athletic Coaching Special Issue

We invite you to submit articles for a special issue of Quest that focuses on sport and athletic coaching. Compared to many other kinesiology disciplines, coaching is relatively new but is growing quickly, incorporating many disciplines within its academic content and practice.  

Articles may be theoretical, research-based, or applied in nature. Examples may include but are not limited to, best practices for coaches, interventions within coaching, the coaching profession, professional training and development, and coach health and well-being.

This issue will be published in the Winter or Spring 2025 issue and is limited to eight articles. To have your articles considered, please submit a proposed abstract to the guest editor, Timothy Baghurst (, by April 1. All article submissions will undergo a regular peer-review process.
