Sport Management Education Journal (SMEJ) promotes advancement of the body of knowledge in pedagogy as it relates to sport management education and disseminates knowledge about sport management courses, curricula, and teaching. This established biannual journal addresses a range of issues concerning graduate and undergraduate education in sport management. Topics of interest include curriculum development accreditation planning, employment competencies, effective teaching methods, experiential learning, online learning, and issues and trends in sport management education. Manuscripts based on conceptual, philosophical, and empirical inquiry will be considered for publication.
Sport Management Education Journal also features a special section called Pedagogical Innovations. In an effort to encourage growth in the exchange of pedagogical practices in sport management, this section solicits contributions that aid SMEJ readers in both a scholarly and expressly practical manner. These submissions address the everyday needs of sport management educators and industry professionals in search of ideas that can be put to use immediately. Submission categories include Case Studies; Educational Reviews; and Essays, Dialogues, and Interviews.
In addition to advancing sport management pedagogy, SMEJ includes a section devoted to the review of material that facilitates sport management education, including textbooks in common sport management concentrations and other areas. Recent issues of SMEJ have included articles on innovations and emerging technologies in sport management education. Some of the subjects that future issues will touch on are service learning, the integration of experiential learning and leadership, and trends of sport management programs in business schools.
For individual subscribers, SMEJ is available in online-only or print-plus-online subscription formats. Both versions provide subscribers full access to the journal’s authoritative content and online access to digital archives of back issues.
Institutional subscriptions are offered in the same formats as well as print only. Institutional subscriptions must be placed by phone.
