SMAANZ Industry Engagement Grant
To encourage scholarly enquiry in sport management and enhance the application of management theory to the sport industry, the Sport Management Association of Australia and New Zealand is pleased to announce the SMAANZ Industry Engagement Grant.
The grant has evolved from the strategic need to strengthen relationships between the academic and sport community to collaborate on achieving mutual outcomes. A sport community may include the government or private sector that incorporates sport into their program to address community, diversity or development initiatives. The purpose of the grant is to support engagement with the sport industry to advance evidence-based enquiry in teaching and/or research in sport management. As such, collaborations, projects or research partnerships between academics and industry bodies are encouraged.
One grant to the total of $3,000 shall be provided annually. The grant recipient shall receive one individual registration to the conference immediately following the completion of the project where the individual will present the results.
Please follow the link below to read further details regarding the grant.

Call for Papers: SMR 2014, Special Issue
Doping in sport: Current issues and challenges for sport management
Guest Editors: James Skinner, Griffith University, Australia; Terry Engelberg, Griffith University, Australia.
Submissions are due on or before September 1, 2014 via the SMR online submission system at http://ees.elsevier.com/smr.
Sport is a major global industry generating billions of dollars in sponsorship, media rights and gambling funds. In recent times a number of sports have been tarnished by doping scandals. These incidents pose threats to the integrity of sport both nationally and on a global scale. In response, sporting organisations and governments have introduced legislation and accompanying punishments to deter the use of both performance enhancing and recreational drugs. However, it could be argued that effective strategies for combating doping in sport are hindered by a lack of organisational commitment, varying opinions on how the problem should be managed and a lack of reliable information and empirical data to formulate and implement appropriate doping policy.
The aim of this Special Issue is to advance our theoretical and empirical understanding of the management of doping in sport. We are aware that scholarly research in this field has evolved from various science disciplines and therefore we are keen to encourage cross-disciplinary contributions, encompassing a variety of methodologies (such as quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods), whilst keeping a sport management focus.Further information
EURAM’14 Call for Papers: Open
The conference will take place in Valencia from 4th to 7th of June and we would like you to consider a submission to the Managing Olympic Sport track.
The management of Olympic sport is of relevance to all researchers in the field of sport management, given the significant impact that the Olympic Games and its associated organisations have on the world of sport. Research in this area addresses all aspects of management, however, the particular focus on Olympic sport requires the understanding of the complexities of the operating environment within which Olympic sport is delivered. We invite both theoretical and empirical papers that address issues on the management of Olympic sport at any level.
Keywords: International Olympic Committee; National Federations; Management of Olympic Sport Organisations; Olympic Games; Elite sport.
