International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics (IJSPP)

Jan 2023


The International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics has three interrelated aims:

·       to stimulate scholarly debate about the role, significance and impact of public policy and contemporary politics on sport

·       to encourage critical analysis of sport policy, the sport policy process and sport politics

·       to publish articles that are theoretically rigorous and of interest to both scholars and practitioners


In addition to Research articles the journal also publishes a series of Country Profiles intended to increase awareness of the global diversity of sport policy and politics. Most profiles are commissioned by the editorial team. However, if you would be interested in preparing a country profile please contact the Editor in Chief. Furthermore, the journal publishes occasional Professional Practice Articles and Viewpoints. While the former provide an opportunity for practitioner analyses of current policy the latter are of a more polemical nature and are designed to stimulate debate.
