JSM Update

Some exciting news to pass along regarding the Journal of Sports Media ...

Starting in March of 2008 the journal will transition from annual publication to twice a year. Publishing annually made sense as the journal tried to get off the ground, but interest has grown tremendously in the past three years. We had 28 submissions for the last issue and could only accept four (a 14% acceptance rate), which means we had to turn away some good scholarship. Now the journal will publish in March and September every year. Thanks so much to University of Nebraska Press for taking this step with us.

The increase in publication means we're changing the submission process to year 'round. Send your submissions to me (bschultz@olemiss.edu) in a Word file (one for the title page and the other for the abstract/paper). Full details of submission guidelines are available here. (Don't pay attention to the submission deadlines; we're in the process of updating the web site).

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about submissions or have an interest in becoming a reviewer.
