Call for Papers: ESMQ 2015, Special Issue - Impacts and Strategic Outcomes from Non-Mega Sport Events for Local Communities
Authors are invited to submit articles that contribute to our understanding of the nature, management and implications of non-mega events. This special issue will bring work together that analyzes tangible and intangible impacts as well as the strategic choices that host communities make when hosting non-mega events, including the outcomes of those choices.
We invite both conceptual and empirical papers related to the topic, from a range of perspectives and impacts, especially non-monetary (e.g., social life, sport participation, urban regeneration, local infrastructure, environmental stewardship…). Papers are welcome to consider spectator sport events, participant sport events, or both. This special issue will bring work together that analyzes tangible and intangible impacts as well as the strategic choices that host communities make when hosting non-mega events, including the outcomes of those choices.
You are also invited to participate in the EASM Special Issue Workshop. Further information is available through the link below.
Call for Papers: ESMQ 2014, Special Issue -Value Co-Creation in Sport Management
You are invited to participate in the debate over "Value Co-Creation in Sport Management". We think that this topic is of high interest, because academia and practice are increasingly recognising the significance of customers and other firms (service networks) for the creation of high quality products and services in the area of sport management. This is why, "Value Co-Creation in Sport Management" is the topic of the Special Issue of European Sport Management Quarterly (ESMQ; 2011 Impact Factor 0.875) in 2014. We invite everybody who is interested in this area of research (e.g. cooperation and competition in sport management, cultures of consumption and sport brand communities, fan behaviour, alliances and networks, relationships and relationship marketing, and all related areas) to submit a paper to the ESMQ 2014 Special Issue.
