Weiss, Amorose, and Kipp to publish in Oxford Handbook of Human Motivation
Maureen Weiss, professor of Kinesiology, and co-authors Anthony Amorose, Illinois State University, and Lindsay Kipp, Kinesiology doctoral candidate, will be published in the Oxford Handbook of Human Motivation, edited by Richard Ryan. In their chapter, "Youth Motivation and Participation in Sport and Physical Activity," the authors synthesize and consolidate theory-driven knowledge about determinants and outcomes of physical activity motivation and behavior.
Authors of virtually all the contemporary theories of motivation are represented in the handbook, as well as a number of experts in specialty areas and applied topics. The chapter is part of an ambitious project being undertaken by Oxford University Press to publish a comprehensive library covering the complete field of psychology, edited by distinguished scholars in their areas. The Library will comprise handbooks that summarize and synthesize a topic, define the current scholarship, and set the agenda for future research. The handbooks will be printed, but also will be available electronically to allow content to be incorporated across topics in a fully integrated electronic library.
