Its aim is to advance understanding and communication between members of the global community who share a professional, personal or scholarly interest in the state and development of physical education and sport around the world.

International Sports Studies (ISS) is today without paradigmatic prejudice and reflects an eclectic approach to the task of understanding physical education and sport in the contemporary world. It asks only that its contributors can add to knowledge about international physical education and sport studies through studies involving comparisons between regional, national and international settings or by providing unique insights into specific national and local phenomena which contribute to an understanding that can be shared across as well as within national borders.
