Welcome to SSSF, sport studies online with open access!

Scandinavian Sport Studies Forum (SSSF) was founded to improve the opportunities for social and cultural science scholars of sports to publish articles that describe and analyze the complex relationship of sport and society.

Thus, SSSF welcomes articles that deal with sport and social change and social stability in a wide sense, and whose point of departure is sport and sustainable development. Articles that – explicitly or implicitly – deal with profound and comprehensive processes affecting sports, such as professionalization, globalization, commercialization, urbanization, technologization, medicalization and juridification, are prioritized by SSSF, and we are particularly interested in the consequences of these processes for sport(s).

The focus on social and cultural studies, and the emphasis on the relationship between sport and society, indicate that SSSF expects to receive contributions from disciplines such as sociology, history, political science, philosophy, urban geography, economy, cultural studies, gender studies, ethnology, socio-legal studies, psychology and physical education.

Contributions to SSSF can be written in Danish, English, Norwegian or Swedish. Articles that are accepted for publication will be published online, available to all, free of charge. Articles are published continually at irregular intervals. Subscribe to the idrottsforum.org free weekly newsletter for information about new articles.

SSSF is published by Malmö University as a companion to idrottsforum.org, a non-refereed sport studies web journal founded in 2003.
