Sport History Review is the continuation of the Canadian Journal of the History of Sport: Revue Canadienne De L’Histoire des Sports, published from 1970 to 1995. Sport History Review is devoted to promoting the study of all facets of the broad field of the history of sport. The peer-reviewed journal is published for sport history specialists who engage in research and/or teaching within an academic context as well as for those with special interest in sport history.

Although SHR is published in North America, the editor and editorial board are committed to addressing topics and issues of international interest. Therefore, articles whose method of analysis or application and appeal is more universally or fundamentally relevant to an international readership are of particular interest to SHR.
