Currently, there are numerous research studies that aim to examine the importance of motivation in several domains such as physical education, sports performance, health, sports management, etc. Thus, the purpose of this special issue is to show the most relevant works that have attempted to test the incidence of motivation through different conceptual frameworks (i.e. Self-Determination Theory, Goal Achievement Theory, etc.) in those contexts.
Hence, this special issue will cover some areas to better identify the following topics:

  • MOTIVATIONAL INTERVENTION PROGRAMS IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION (to improve students´ satisfaction and interest towards physical activity and create healthy habits in the future).
  • MOTIVATIONAL INTERVENTION IN A SPORT PERFORMANCE DOMAIN (with the aim to know how to optimize all the processes that can arise in an individual or a sport team to enhance performance).
  • MOTIVATIONAL INTERVENTION IN HEALTH (the importance of motivation to promote healthy habits, modify conduct, etc.).
  • MOTIVATIONAL INTERVENTION IN SPORTS MANAGEMENT (with the aim to know how to optimize the relationship between motivation and sports management).

We do invite and encourage scientists from all over the world to be included in this special issue considering the indicated research areas. For further information, please contact Dr. Pedro Antonio Sánchez Miguel ( or Dra. Diana Amado Alonso (
