Special virtual issue journal on sports psychology

We are delighted to offer you free access to this Virtual Issue on Sport Psychology from the Journals of the British Psychological Society.

Ever since Norman Triplett's (1898) ground-breaking publication on social influence on cycling performance, which is often cited as the first experiment in social psychology, psychologists have taken an interest in sport. And of course interest has blossomed in the study of sport psychology, which has a history spanning over 100 years.

This virtual special issue highlights some of the important studies in sport that have advanced knowledge across the British Psychological Society journals in different areas ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
