IRSS is a peer reviewed academic journal. Its main purpose is to disseminate research and scholarship on sport throughout the international academic community.

The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: Women in sports leadership: A systematic narrative review by Adam B Evans and Gertrud U Pfister.
In this original review for idrottsforum.org by Dominic Malcolm, Peter Krustrup’s long-awaited summing-up of 17 years of research around the health benefits of football, Football as Medicine: Prescribing Football for Global Health Promotion, edited with Daniel Parnell (Routledge), is critically assessed. While commending the basic premise of the book and its trust in football as medicine, he regrets the lack of critical perspectives.

Lise Joern reviews a collected volume from the impressive “Football Research in an Enlarged Europe” series at Palgrave Macmillan, Female Football Players and Fans: Intruding into a Man’s World, edited by Gertrud Pfister and Stacey Pope. She appreciates the book and its contributions but ends on a note of pessimism about the situation for women’s football and its fans.
Ytterligare ett tecken på akademiseringen av fotboll är en nyutkommen lärobok i fotbollsforskning, Studying Football (Routledge), sammanställd av Ellis Cashmore och Kevin Dixon. Torbjörn Andersson beklagar att boken har ett så tydligt engelskt fokus, och att ”patetiska” fotbollsländer som USA och Australien får större tyngd än ledande europeiska nationer.
The title of the anthology The Ethics of Sport: Essential Readings, edited by Arthur L. Caplan & Brendan Parent (Oxford University Press), is essentially a misnomer, according to our reviewer, Shawn Klein. The collected journal articles deal only occasionally with ethics, and the book’s purpose and audience is basically unclear. Some contributions, though, are worthy of the title.
Leisure Studies is the journal of the Leisure Studies Association.
