Jeffrey Martin, professor of exercise and sport science in Wayne State University’s College of Education, was recently appointed as the editor of “Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology,” a journal of the American Psychological Association. The first official issue will be available in January 2012.
Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology is the APA’s first journal devoted to sport and exercise psychology, and its focus on performance psychology is unique among sport and exercise journals. The publication will include research on the psychological care and well-being of athletes, coaches and sports organizations; behavioral, social, cognitive and psychobiological outcomes of physical activity; and human performance in environments that emphasize teamwork and motivation.
Martin, a former professional athlete, recently was associate editor of the Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly and is on the editorial board of the Journal of Applied Sport Psychology. During his 18 years at Wayne State University, he has published more than 85 research articles and book chapters and has concentrated his research on the psychosocial aspects of disability sport and physical activity.
