This study examined knowledge creation by faculty currently employed in North American sport management doctoral programs relative to program structure (i.e., integrated or traditional). Faculty curricula vitae were collected to ascertain average annual publications, presentations, and publications by student advisees. Publication data were subcategorized by publication quality and authorship level. The analysis revealed that faculty employed in doctoral programs with integrated structures annually produced more publications and published in higher quality journals at a greater rate than their colleagues in traditional sport management doctoral programs. Data also revealed that as a collective, sport management faculty and student advisees are publishing and presenting at significantly higher rates in the current decade than in years prior.
