Abstract

Stereotypical thinking is threatening progress, not the least within our field of sport and exercise psychology. If you belong to the ‘in-group’ you may not even think that you are privileged, but if you belong to the ‘out-group’ it is sometimes a rather frustrating experience. Consider language for example: in the early days German was the language of science; nowadays English has taken over. It is hardly surprising then that native English speaking researchers dominate almost every field, and that non-native speakers struggle to make their voice heard. Not because of their ideas or study designs, but because their way of presenting their findings may not be up to scratch—from the perspective of the prevailing norm and culture that determines what is acceptable—according to editors and peer-reviewers. The consequences of exclusion are severe, and our call in this chapter is therefore to work towards inclusion, diversity and pluralism, thereby reducing bias and conservatism.
