Sport Management Education Journal (SMEJ)

Jan 2023


Sport Management Education Journal (SMEJ) promotes advancement of the body of knowledge in pedagogy as it relates to sport management education and disseminates knowledge about sport management courses, curricula, teaching, and faculty affairs. This established semiannual journal addresses a range of issues concerning graduate and undergraduate education in sport management. Topics of interest include curriculum development, accreditation, employment competencies, effective teaching methods, experiential learning, online learning, and issues and trends in sport management education. Manuscripts based on conceptual, philosophical, and empirical inquiry will be considered for publication.


SMEJ also features a special section called Pedagogical Innovations. In an effort to encourage growth in the exchange of pedagogical practices in sport management, this section solicits contributions that aid SMEJ readers in both a scholarly and expressly practical manner. These submissions address the everyday needs of sport management educators and industry professionals in search of ideas that can be put to use immediately. Submission categories include Case Studies, Educational Research Reviews, and Essays, Dialogues, and Interviews.

SMEJ is also collaborating with the Teaching & Learning Fair held in conjunction with the NASSM conference to provide researchers an opportunity to publish works that are extended descriptions of presentations they made there. These submissions describe and explain a project or strategy that has been successfully implemented in the sport management classroom. The aim is to share practical ideas in a scholarly manner that is easily accessible and understandable.
