Performance Science is a specialty section of the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychology. The journal provides a platform to discuss, debate and disseminate research into human performance across a broad spectrum of activities and approaches. Performance is at the very core of progress in the arts, business, education, medicine, science and sport. Increasingly, performers and scientists are working beyond disciplinary boundaries, forming diverse partnerships and teams, and engaging a wide range of research methods to understand the fundamental skills, mechanisms and outcomes of performance activities and experiences.
Performance Science promotes empirical, methodological, technological and theoretical advances both within and between performance disciplines, with new insights drawn from across the sciences. We particularly welcome submissions of research that has adopted a strongly interdisciplinary approach to tackling the major challenges of investigating human performance. We also encourage authors, where appropriate, to make explicit the relevance of their work to those who actively engage in, comment on and shape policy for performance.
