Call for papers
The College Sport Research Institute welcomes the submission of abstracts for its 6th annual CSRI Conference on College Sport to be held on the campus of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC. The conference’s mission is to: “Provide students, scholars, and college-sport practitioners a public forum to discuss relevant and timely intercollegiate-athletics issues.”


To be considered for acceptance, abstracts must reflect college-sport research on the history of intercollegiate athletics, social-cultural college-sport issues, legal theory or the application of law to college-sport issues, business-related issues in college sport, or special topics related to current college-sport issues. The research should have reached a fairly complete stage of development, and the abstract should provide enough detail about the research, so the reviewers have sufficient information to judge its quality. Abstracts proposing teaching-related sessions on college-sport issues will also be considered, as long as the abstract provides sufficient detail to judge the quality of the proposed session. 
Abstracts will undergo a multi-person, blind-review process to determine acceptance.
Abstracts submitted to CSRI should not be concurrently submitted for consideration to another conference.
Abstracts should NOT be submitted prior to Monday, October 15, 2012 and MUST be received no later than Friday, January 11, 2013 (11:59p.m. EST). Submissions received after this date and time will not be considered for acceptance.
