Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “The Application of Experimental Research in Sport Management, Marketing and Business” | Call ends January 1, 2022
Within the fields of sport management, marketing, and business, experimental studies have been steadily gaining in popularity. However, the use of experiments is still limited among sport research compared to other fields. Although observational studies have formed the foundation of sport research, experimental studies have some distinct advantages over observational studies, primarily the ability to draw stronger causal conclusions about the effects of variables on behaviors, attitudes, and intentions.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Thinking and Doing Intersectionality in Sociology of Sport” | Call ends September 30, 2021
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and its intersectional impacts, as well as the recent intensification of activism and protest related to racialized and gendered injustices, the moment is ripe to revisit and reflect on the concept of intersectionality, including within the field of sociology of sport. We ask: How has intersectional theorizing and analysis figured within sociology of sport to date? We are encouraging contributors to view this as a unique opportunity to create a collection that is accessible and relevant to practitioners in sport.

This is to inform policy makers and guide organizations in their efforts to build a more equitable and inclusive future for women and girls in community sport.

The call is multi-disciplinary in nature but does require focus on one or more of the four elements in the proposed title, i.e. sport, leisure, tourism, and events.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Spectator Sport and Fan Behavior”. Call ends April 9, 2021
Spectator sports represents one of society’s most universal leisure activities. While event attendance and media consumption have received a great deal of attention from scholars, there is a growing understanding that sports fans interact, both physically and digitally, with their favorite teams in numerous other ways. The aim of this Research Topic is to explore fan behaviors in many different areas, involving sports media and the (ever changing) digital environment.
We welcome submissions employing a range of disciplinary, methodological, and theoretical approaches. We define sport broadly and would welcome work in competitive, recreational, leisure and physical activity contexts, addressing the relationship between sport and community. That is, work should engage in some way beyond individuals and explore ideas of community, authenticity, relationships, context, place, collectivity, inclusion, belonging, social justice, or a common good.
Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “The Social and Psychological Outcomes of Sport Spectatorship”. Call ends June 30, 2021
The purpose of this article collection is to shed light on the wider utility of sport spectatorship to achieve social and psychological outcomes in different countries, contexts, and populations. We strongly encourage novel and innovative approaches to researching this topic – notably conceptual and/or methodological aspects that are inclusive and accepting of the ontology and epistemology of the community within which the research is conducted.
