Welcome to the first issue of the UK Coaching Applied
Coaching Research Journal. The journal is designed
to identify key topics of interest and bring them to
the forefront of the coaching community. One of
the great aspects of coaching is that there is always
something new to learn. Here, we are providing a
platform to support and expand that learning.
Much research around coaching and coach-related topics
is conducted each year, but often it can be overlooked by
practitioners. There are a variety of reasons for this; it
might be the terminology and the type of language it is
presented in, or it could quite simply be that many coaches
don’t have access to it. This is where we can help!
UK Coaching and its Research team have asked myself,
Louisa Arnold (Kent Sport) and Wayne Allison (The Football
Association) to join their Editorial Team, as independent
members. We are, first and foremost, coaches who
understand the amazing yet complex world of coaching.
Our aim is to translate relevant research and information
into an output that will support the coaching community, as
well as identify key gaps that need further investigation.
While this journal is a platform where we can share
coaching-related topics, you may also want to join
our coaching network, ConnectedCoaches. Here you
can become involved in bespoke coaching discussions
and widen your coaching support network.
We hope you find the journal useful and informative.
For future journals we would like to invite people to
submit articles with a variety of relevant coaching
topics. If you are interested in submitting an article, or
would like to be involved in the journal in the future
(as an author, reviewer or editor) then please email the
Research team at [email protected]
