Journal call for papers from Sport, Business and Management

Sport, Business and Management: An International Journal (SBM) is currently assessing papers for publication.

New for 2011 and edited by Professor Simon Chadwick, Coventry University, UK, SBM promotes the development of a coherent, high-quality body of work in sport, business and management, an area of research that is growing very quickly and an industry that has grown dramatically over the last decade.

SBM publishes a range of different papers including conceptual and empirical, as well as case studies, critical analyses and academic commentaries. Submissions will be expected to use sporting examples and concepts to illustrate management theory; use management theories and concepts to investigate sport; and address management problems and issues in a sporting context.  Submissions using both quantitative and qualitative approaches are welcomed.
