Call for Papers

The College Sport Research Institute welcomes the submission of abstracts for its 9th annual CSRI Conference on College Sport to be held at the Downtown Columbia, SC Marriott: http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/caemh-columbia-marriott/

The conference’s mission is to: “Provide students, scholars, and college-sport practitioners a public forum to discuss relevant and timely college sport issues.”

To be considered for acceptance, abstracts must reflect research on college-sport history, socialcultural college-sport issues, legal theory or the application of law to college-sport issues, businessrelated 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 26, 2015 and MUST be received no later than Friday, January 22, 2016 (11:59p.m. EST). Submissions received after this date and time will not be considered for acceptance.
