SMEJ Mission Statement

Sport Management Education Journal (SMEJ) promotes advancement of the body of knowledge in pedagogy as it relates to sport management education and disseminates knowledge about sport management courses, curricula, and teaching. This established semiannual journal addresses a range of issues concerning graduate and undergraduate education in sport management. Topics of interest include curriculum development, accreditation, employment competencies, effective teaching methods, experiential learning, online learning, and issues and trends in sport management education. Manuscripts based on conceptual, philosophical, and empirical inquiry will be considered for publication.

In addition to advancing sport management pedagogy, SMEJ includes a section devoted to the review of material that facilitates sport management education, including textbooks in common sport management concentrations and other areas. Recent issues of SMEJ have included articles on innovations and emerging technologies in sport management education. Some of the subjects that future issues will touch on include service-learning, the integration of experiential learning and leadership, and trends of sport management programs in business schools.

Sport Management Education Journal also features a special section called Pedagogical Innovations. In an effort to encourage growth in the exchange of pedagogical practices in sport management, this section solicits contributions that aid SMEJ readers in both a scholarly and expressly practical manner. These submissions address the everyday needs of sport management educators and industry professionals in search of ideas that can be put to use immediately. Submission categories include Case Studies; Educational Research Reviews; and Essays, Dialogues, & Interviews.


The Sport Management Education Journal is also available in a digital format, providing online subscribers with the same authoritative content of the print edition but with additional advantages, including the ability to search articles and to access to all back issues. The content of the online version of SMEJ is available before the print version arrives by mail, and online subscribers can receive the table of contents of each issue by e-mail when a new issue has been published.
