Documentos de Estudios de Ocio is a series of specialist publications on leisure run by the Institute of Leisure Studies at the University of Deusto through its Chair in Leisure and Knowledge. One of its distinguishing features is their interdisciplinary approach to leisure study.
Its aim is to disseminate the existing knowledge on leisure as a scientific research subject, with special emphasis on the dissemination of knowledge generated by the Institute of Leisure Studies for more than 25 years, guided by university rigour and a clear focus on the future.
The set of publications that currently make up this collection aims to respond to the many questions and concerns posed by society and the scientific community regarding leisure and its various cultural, tourist, sports or recreational manifestations.
From its beginnings in the 1990s, the Institute of Leisure Studies at the University of Deusto, as a source of training and research, undertook its commitment to society and the university to disseminate the knowledge and progress made in the interdisciplinary study of leisure.
Documentos de Estudios de Ocio is the result of this editorial endeavour and the support from the Santander Bank, through the Chair in Leisure and Knowledge of said Institute.
After two decades of work, this Collection has become a benchmark of specialist knowledge dissemination and transfer on leisure. The more than 55 books that make it up are a good example of the great progress made in leisure studies over the last few years. Thanks to them, it is possible to gain access both to the knowledge generated by UD's Institute of Leisure Studies and other benchmark entities in this field.
