Innovative Communication in College Athletics
During the past 30 years, there has been a great deal of growth in college athletics in the form of technological advances and interaction with key stakeholders. Although many factors have influenced this expansion, there is no question that sport communication has drastically changed the landscape of college athletics at all levels. In this special issue on college athletics, various sport communication topics are covered with an array of methodologies and content areas. Each study brings a unique perspective to innovative communication issues that are prevalent in college athletics.
The International Journal of Sport Communication (IJSC) provides a platform for the dissemination of research and information on the unique aspects and divergent activities associated with sport communication. Although many journals cover a single aspect of sport and communication, IJSC is the first to provide an all-encompassing view of the field by covering any topic related to communication in sport, through sport, or in a sport setting. This rigorously reviewed quarterly journal features quantitative and qualitative articles, including cutting-edge research, case studies, and editorials.
