Focus and Scope

Founded in 2015, The Journal of Higher Education Athletics & Innovation publishes original research reporting on the academic study of the intersection between intercollegiate athletics and higher education as a broad enterprise. We hope you consider contributing your work as we welcome scholars at various stages in their careers. If submitting an international study, clear connections should be made to the collegiate model of athletics in the United States.


Peer Review Process

Each article will be peer-reviewed by two anonymous readers.  These readers will not be aware of the submitting authors identity. In the case of a split decision, the editor will make read the manuscript and decide its publication fate.  If revisions are requested, the articles will be copy-edited by the Editorial staff. A proof will be sent back to the authors prior to publication. This will allow the individuals to review copy-editing decisions prior to final publication.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
