Welcome to the Journal of Chess Research Web Site

The Journal of Chess Research is published quarterly in Lexington, Kentucky, and distributed to university libraries, academicians, chess players, researchers and other interested parties both in printed and electronic formats. Each issue is intended to contribute broadly to awareness and understanding of the impact of chess on human development, psychology, cognition, philosophy, sociology, aging, business strategy, education and technology. Manuscripts that make strong empirical and theoretical contributions to the field of chess-related research are welcome from scholars throughout the academic community, both in the United States and abroad, and need not be tied to any particular discipline, level of analysis or national context.
