The Annals of Leisure Research (ALR) was established in 1998 as a double-blind peer reviewed research journal, published quarterly.

Annals of Leisure Research publishes refereed articles which promote the development of research and scholarship in leisure studies. Although originating in Australasia, Annals is aimed at an international readership and seeks theoretical or applied articles which cover any topic within the broad area of leisure studies, including recreation, tourism, hospitality, the arts, outdoor recreation, events, entertainment, sport, culture and play.

Alongside research articles, the journal publishes critical commentaries on contemporary issues, book reviews, and reviews of classical books in the field.

The journal regularly publishes special issues on topical fields of study and anyone wishing to propose a special issue topic is encouraged to contact the journal editor, Associate Professor Neil Carr (

Annals of Leisure Research replaced the biennial publication ANZALS Research Series, three volumes of which were published between 1993 and 1997. The three volumes of ANZALS Research Series, and the first five volumes of ALR were single issue volumes. As from Volume 6, 2003, the journal has been published quarterly.
