Sport History Review (SHR) is a forum for scholarly work in the field of sport history. With an editorial board that reflects the international diversity of its contents, SHR offers a solid approach to research and writing in the broad field of sport history. Submissions to SHR undergo a rigorous review process, providing readers with the most authoritative information on topics in the field. A continuation of the original Canadian Journal of Sport History, SHR is an essential resource for those wishing to deepen their knowledge of sport and to understand the ongoing human fascination with sport.
SHR publishes scholarly articles, methodological and research notes, commentaries, and invited book reviews. SHR has recently published articles on reviewer reflexivity in ethnographic research, self-reflection in sport studies, and the role of physical activity in the life of George Field. In future issues, the journal will continue to publish authoritative articles that deepen understanding of sport history and its relevance today.
SHR 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 and access back issues. The content of the online version of SHR is available 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.
