Abstract  A literature review of cross-cultural studies in sport psychology 1988~2004 suggests that research in this area has still some methodological problems despite the increase in the number of papers published. The authors propose a 3-step theoretical framework and a 4-stage conceptual framework to help researchers become aware of the extent of the methodological issues and to guide them along the way in their efforts to do quality cross-cultural research in sport. Apart from trying to do quality research, findings of cross-cultural studies in sport so far have important implications of practice for athletes, coaches, psychologists, technical support staff, and sport administrators. Thus, research and practice are meaningfully linked together
