The Journal of Sport Management (JSM) reflects the rapid expansion of the field with its commitment to presenting outstanding original research and up-to-date information addressing all areas and subdisciplines in sport management. A leading journal in the field, JSM focuses on the theory and application of management in sport, with a special emphasis on new trends and emerging subdisciplines.
JSM exposes readers to diverse issues affecting sport leaders, managers, employees, and volunteers as well as sport organizations in all sectors (i.e., public, nonprofit, and commercial). The journal keeps readers informed on developments in the discipline through short reports, editorials on significant issues, journal abstracts, book reviews, and news items of interest. JSM is used extensively by students and scholars in the numerous sport management programs in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
JSM has published numerous articles written by leading experts on topics such as Paralympic legacy and the role of referees, which is a neglected area of research in youth sport development. JSM will continue to bring to light the latest developments in the field, including a special issue on sport marketing and sponsorship.
JSM is also published in a digital format, providing online subscribers with the same authoritative content of the print edition but with additional advantages, such as the ability to search entire issues in seconds and access to back issues. The content of the online version of JSM is accessible weeks before the print version arrives by mail, and subscribers can receive each issue's table of contents by e-mail when a new issue is published.
