Call for Papers | Journal of Olympic Studies


The Center for Sociocultural Sport and Olympic Research (CSSOR), housed at the California State University, Fullerton, in collaboration with the University of Illinois Press are proud to announce the launch of the Journal of Olympic Studies (JOS). With two issues per year, JOS offers an international scholarly forum in the field of Olympic research. We invite scholars to submit articles (5,000-10,000 words) for our inaugural issues, slated for release in Spring and Fall of 2020.

The JOS will publish academic work on the Olympic and Paralympic Movements from scholars in the fields of history, philosophy, management, sociology, communication, classics, literature, anthropology, cultural studies, economics, marketing, and law. This includes research on the Olympic, Paralympic, and Youth Olympic Games, National Olympic Committees, as well as the World-Anti Doping Agency, the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and International Federations as they relate to the Olympic Movement.  By placing scholars from various disciplines side-by-side on the common topic of the Olympics, JOS (available in both print and electronic format and marketed to a global scholarly audience) aims to promote and encourage a multi-disciplinary understanding of the Olympic and Paralympic Movements.
