Esports grew exponentially in recent years and the topic becomes increasingly relevant in academic research. Therefore, the goal of this page is to create an extensive list of academic literature on esports. However, not only focused on research done in English but also other languages. This list is based on the initial literature list done by T.L. Taylor.
The list is curated by Nico Besombes, Mariano Bourgeois, J. Agustín Carrillo, Will Partin, Tobias Scholz, Lisa Völkel.
