“Invisible Sportswomen 2.0”—Digging Deeper Into Gender Bias in Sport and Exercise Science Research: Author Gender, Editorial Board Gender, and Research Quality

Emma S. Cowley, Sam R. Moore, Alyssa A. Olenick, and Kelly L. McNulty

unwillingness to assess and/or control for female-specific considerations, such as reproductive hormonal milieu, has resulted in most research in this area being of low quality ( Elliott-Sale et al., 2021 ). While there is no shortage of methodological papers to assist researchers in including women as

affordability, which warrants further methodological studies to confirm the validity of RPE in such context. Apart from the context and setting, it is worth mentioning that our ROC analysis was conducted specific to an adolescent population with a 0 to 10 RPE scale. Therefore, future studies are recommended to

Experimental Design and Research Methodology in Aging: Implications for Research and Clinical Practice

Wojtek J. Chodzko-Zajko

This paper presents a brief overview of some of the major issues associated with research design in experimental gerontology. The intention is not to provide a comprehensive and detailed guide to experimental design and research methods. Rather, the paper focuses on a more general discussion of several issues associated with the design, implementation, and interpretation of research in an attempt to illustrate why a rudimentary knowledge of these topics is essential for all researchers and practitioners involved in the study of the aging process. Wherever possible, specific examples from the exercise science and applied health literature are selected in order to illustrate the significance of these factors for our field of expertise.

Quantification of Underestimation of Physical Activity During Cycling to School When Using Accelerometry

Jakob Tarp, Lars B. Andersen, and Lars Østergaard


Cycling to and from school is an important source of physical activity (PA) in youth but it is not captured by the dominant objective method to quantify PA. The aim of this study was to quantify the underestimation of objectively assessed PA caused by cycling when using accelerometry.


Participants were 20 children aged 11 to 14 years from a randomized controlled trial performed in 2011. Physical activity was assessed by accelerometry with the addition of heart rate monitoring during cycling to school. Global positioning system (GPS) was used to identify periods of cycling to school.


Mean minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) during round-trip commutes was 10.8 (95% CI: 7.1−16.6). Each kilometer of cycling meant an underestimation of 9314 (95% CI: 7719−11238) counts and 2.7 (95% CI: 2.1−3.5) minutes of MVPA. Adjusting for cycling to school increased estimates of MVPA/day by 6.0 (95% CI: 3.8−9.6) minutes.


Cycling to and from school contribute substantially to levels of MVPA and to mean counts/min in children. This was not collected by accelerometers. Using distance to school in conjunction with self-reported cycling to school may be a simple tool to improve the methodology.

Archival Research in Sport Management: A Review for Research Methods Courses

Tiffany Demiris and Chad Seifried

team-teaching efforts generally focus on the dominant methodologies (i.e., quantitative and qualitative methods) that receive the most attention from sport management researchers and less on other approaches ( Nite & Singer, 2013 ). Many programs may also supplement gaps in their research methods

Strengthening the Practice of Exercise and Sport-Science Research

Israel Halperin, Andrew D. Vigotsky, Carl Foster, and David B. Pyne

constant growth of exercise and sport sciences, there are a number of methodological problems concerning common research designs and practices that hinder the impact of research. These problems include but are not limited to inadequate validation of surrogate outcomes, too few longitudinal and replication

Understanding the effect of sampling rate on habitual physical activity measurement is important given that this information informs methodological decisions

Critical Discourse Analysis as Theory, Methodology, and Analyses in Sport Management Studies

Katherine Sveinson, Larena Hoeber, and Caroline Heffernan

Recent years have yielded a call for more diverse methodological approaches in studying sport management ( Hoeber & Shaw, 2017 ; Shaw & Hoeber, 2016 ; Singer et al. 2019 ). Many panels and presentations at conferences, and special journal issues (see Sport Management Review , 2017, volume 20
