Sports Communication Interest Group

The Sports Communication Interest Group invites faculty and student submission of original research papers that focus on sports. Submissions must contain a clear media dimension such as traditional media (newspapers, TV, radio) or strategic communication (PR, advertising, or sports marketing). Submissions should be theoretically grounded and offer tangible evidence of scholarly rigor.

We welcome qualitative and quantitative research methods; we encourage a broad spectrum of approaches, including sociological, historical, critical, pedagogical, and cultural research. Only one paper per author will be accepted for review. Submissions must not be under consideration elsewhere for presentation or publication.

Please see the AEJMC Uniform Call for Papers for applicable submission requirements and instructions to upload to the All-Academic site. Our recommended paper length is approximately 7,500 words (25-30 pages, including tables, figures and references). Papers that do not meet the AEJMC Uniform Call for Papers requirements will not be accepted.

Faculty and student submissions will undergo separate blind review processes by faculty-only judges. Student papers co-authored by faculty will be inserted into the faculty pool, regardless of lead author status. Student authors — undergraduate and graduate students enrolled during the 2011-2012 school year — should include a cover sheet that clearly states the paper is a student submission. Submissions should contain no identifying information, such as name, university affiliation, or job title. Please be certain that any identification that may occur via electronic means is fully removed, as the presence of any identifying information, whether intended or unintended, will result in removal from consideration.

Please direct questions about submissions to Paul Husselbee, Southern Utah University,
