Providing an overview of the book, this chapter expounds the stimulating and critical context of outdoor studies research through a range of perspectives, methods and methodologies. Drawing from theory and practice through a variety of disciplinary and epistemological backgrounds from international researchers, it illustrates contemporary, creative and innovative research approaches and applications. It defines the importance of responsiveness of a rich, diverse and fast expanding area and its impact on policy agendas. This introduction explores the rationale for the content of the book, the terminology therein and challenges and opportunities of contested viewpoints and different axiologies in outdoor studies research.
