Abstract Many definitions of volunteering are used in research, creating confusion for readers and researchers alike. Further, many of these definitions are narrow and result in exclusion of a range of activities, behaviours, and sectors of society. In a more global environment, researchers need to recognise the diversity of activities that can be included under a definition of volunteering. In recognition of this diversity, a new typology or measurement matrix is proposed that delineates these differences and ensures clarity for the research community.
