EJSES: European Journal of Sports and Exercise Science


An open-access, peer-reviewed publication called European Publication of Sports & Exercise Science promotes original research contributions that have a substantial global impact. It gives articles on scientific exercises and sports in every discipline. The journal's main objective is to encourage the publishing of multidisciplinary research in the fields of sports science and sports medicine. For submissions to this peer-reviewed journal, authors are encouraged to explore the following areas: applied sport sciences, physiology, and nutrition; human movement involving elements of biological, physical, and health sciences; biomechanics and neural control; cardiovascular physiology and metabolism; exercise physiology; fitness assessment; kinesiology, metabolism, and nutrition; physical therapy and athletic training; sport psychology and behaviour; and management of sports injuries. Introduction: Sports Psychology Sports psychology is a specialty that combines psychological expertise and knowledge to solve issues such as systemic problems in sports environments and organizations, social and developmental elements of sports participation, and optimal performance and well-being of athletes. After obtaining a doctorate in one of the major branches of psychology and becoming licensed as a psychologist, the American Psychological Association (APA) recognizes sport psychology as a specialty. Those with a doctorate in sport psychology but are not licensed psychologists are not included in this proficiency. Interventions in sport psychology are intended to help athletes and other sports participants (such as coaches, administrators, and parents) from a variety of settings, levels of competition, and ages, from recreational young athletes to professional and Olympic athletes to master's level performers. Behavioristic Sport Psychology Features: The first characteristic of behavioral sport psychology entails identifying the specific behavior of athletes and/or coaches that needs to be improved, defining that behavior in a way that allows them to be measured with reliability, and using changes in the behavioral measure as the best indicator of how much the intervention has helped the target of the intervention. The use of operant and responder conditioning concepts and techniques as the foundation for behavioral psychology therapy techniques allows them to reorganize the stimuli that operate as the antecedents and outcomes of an athlete's behavior. The majority of interventions with athletes have been created by professionals with a cognitive-behavioral perspective, which is the third criterion of behavioral sport psychology. Cognitive processes like believing, thinking, expecting, and seeing are commonly the focus of cognitive-behavior therapy. The use of single-subject study designs by researchers to assess interventions in sports settings is the fourth element of this methodology. Important Elements of Sports Psychology The foundation of four distinct elements of sports psychology is social identity. These characteristics are listed below: 1) Sports Team Conduct: Engagement with group behavior affects and shapes a person's sense of self. Since interactions within the group are a significant component of the dynamic of a sports team, it follows that an individual's sense of self is not totally determined by them. Then, defining this role of oneself is used to claim a place in the group's success. 2) Organization and growth of sports teams: All sports, including running, promote kindness and a sense of community. People's social development is facilitated through unity, camaraderie, and group formation. 3) Stress assessment and support for sports groups: Within social self-categorization processes, which are created within support and stress assessment frameworks, social identity is constructed. Sport- and team-related stress can cause significant strain and/or help build coping mechanisms. 4) Sports Group Leadership: Development and interactions of social leadership are influenced by social identity and the previous three factors. Sports interactions are moving beyond transactional ideas of leadership and toward more intersectional leadership philosophies. Open Access Guidelines: Since all of Scholars Research Library's journals are fully open access publications, the scientific community can easily access them , Researchers can freely and unrestrictedly access the full text of papers published in Scholars Research Library Journals; in contrast, readers can see the published articles without a login or password. It raises the study's prominence, usability, and number of citations.
