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 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.

Additional information about the Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics or the College Sport Research Institute can be found at this link.


Professor McCann,
I know this is unrelated to your article, but you should read Jason Stark's article on about the double standard used to view professional athletes who have been linked to steroids or HGH. As you are probably aware, Rick Ankiel, an outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals (my favorite team) has been linked to using HGH in 2004, which was just before baseball made it illegal. Stark's article is excellent because it provides a useful and thoughtful analysis of the double standard people use when talking about Barry Bonds vs. most other players linked to performance-enhancing drugs. Stark also examines the different treatment given to football players vs. baseball players by people who are discussing performance-enhancing drugs. It's an excellent article and I recommend giving it a read. Here the link:
