H-Sport Publisher Project

The Publisher Project aims to create a list of publishers/editors that have an interest in sports monographs and edited volumes.  The ongoing list is intended to give h-sports members a better sense of how much publishing is going on in the field of sports studies, to direct scholars to publishers with which they are unfamiliar, and to guide authors to receptive presses. We hope for the list to be as all-encompassing as possible, including those publishers/editors interested in sport history, sport sociology, the philosophical study of sport, and any other major research subfield in the study of physical education and sport.

The current list includes presses from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, and Portugal, but we are also very interested in publishers outside of the United States and in languages other than English. Publishers are listed in alphabetic order in each category.

Obviously, we cannot do this project without your assistance; this is a crowd sourced project.  If you know of any ongoing or forthcoming series on sports, any publishers/editors with a history of putting out material related to sports, or have or are published a book recently we would love to hear from you.  Information can be sent directly to Keith Rathbone, who coordinates the H-Sport Publisher Project. If you are affiliated with a non-English language publisher, we are especially interested in hearing from you.

NOTE: If you are interested in publicizing a specific book, please visit the H-Sport Book Announcements page.
