Appendix 6. Publisher Names and Abbreviations

The following list contains the names of publishers who have published books in the sport and exercise sciences, the city where the publishing house is located, and the proper abbreviation to use in reference lists. If an entry has no abbreviation after it, the entire name is to be used in the reference list. If you don’t find the name of a publisher you are looking for, please add it, including as much information as you can.

These are some principles for abbreviating publisher names in a reference list.

1. Always include Press and Books.
2. Don’t include Publishers, Publishing, Company, Inc. or Publications.
3. If the publisher is a person, use the last name only, no initials (exception: Charles C Thomas).
4. Don’t include articles at the beginning of names.
