Aim & Scope:

Leisure / Loisir strives to publish a diverse collection of scholarly papers in all areas of leisure, recreation, arts, parks, sport, and travel and tourism. Reflecting the multi- and interdisciplinary nature of these areas of study, the journal invites papers that use a wide range of perspectives and research methods. Submissions may include, but are not limited to: empirical research papers (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods), conceptual papers, comprehensive review papers, policy and economic impact analyses, and pedagogical aspects for leisure educators. Commentary, rejoinders, and other critical papers also are welcome. Leisure is a global phenomenon, and therefore, the journal embraces international perspectives.

Leisure / Loisir is the official publication of the Canadian Association for Leisure Studies/Association canadienne d’études en loisir ( CALS). While Leisure / Loisir is based in Canada and offers a primary outlet for individuals affiliated with Canadian institutions, the journal encourages international submissions. Book reviews are typically invited, but unsolicited book reviews are considered as well. As a Canadian journal, both English and French manuscript submissions are encouraged.

Peer Review Statement All manuscripts submitted to Leisure / Loisir undergo double blind peer review by an Associate Editor and two reviewers.
