Call for Papers to Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics
The College Sport Research Institute, of which I am pleased to be on the Executive Board, has the following announcement:
Call for Manuscripts & Instructions to Authors
The College Sport Research Institute (CSRI) is pleased to announce the Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics (JIIA), a new on-line journal. JIIA’s purpose is to advance thought and examine issues related to ethical, social, economic, and political issues surrounding college sport in the United States.
JIIA is issuing a “call for manuscripts” for original position papers, empirical studies, theoretical papers, and critical analyses of college-sport issues.
Manuscript files (Microsoft Word format only) should be submitted electronically to the Editor, Dr. Kevin L. Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org and attached to an e-mail message stating the manuscript has not been simultaneously submitted for publication and/or published elsewhere. Manuscripts must conform to the current “Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.” Manuscripts must include an abstract of approximately 150-200 words and complete references. Each manuscript must be typewritten, double-spaced throughout, use “Times New Roman” font (size 12), and utilize one inch margins on the top, bottom, and sides. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyrighted information and materials. Submitting a manuscript indicates the author(s) agree to transfer of copyright to The College Sport Research Institute. Manuscripts submitted that correctly follow the submission guidelines will blind reviewed.
