How to publish in this journal


The most important function of a sport sociological journal like the European Journal for Sport and Society (EJSS) is to enable an international discussion about current issues and to foster collaboration between researchers from all social scientific sub-disciplines. The EJSS is therefore a platform for multi-thematic sociological reflections on a broad variety of themes, theoretical approaches and empirical methods in sport sociological research. The EJSS is open for articles about sport, physical education, recreation, the social body and movement cultures. In addition to sociological approaches, historical, socio-psychological, political and economic perspectives are appreciated as well. Join the conversation about this journal
