Recreational Sports Journal: The scoop on back issues and submitting articles
Back issues of the Recreational Sports Journal (2000-current) are posted for online search capability on the NEPC website. All Professional and Student Members can access the online RSJ with a key code. Please contact NIRSA if you need a key code (issued annually).
Speaking of back issues, Human Kinetics has all of the hard-copy back issues of the Recreational Sports Journal (previously the NIRSA Journal) dating back to the first issue in 1977. HK is currently working to place all of the back issues online, so that by early 2008, NIRSA Members will be able to search for articles dating back to Volume 1, No. 1 from March 1977!
Not finding a topic that interests you in the RSJ? Maybe you should consider submitting an article for publication! Guidelines for authors and suggested topic areas are printed in the back of each journal and in the Publications section of the NIRSA website. The Journal Editorial Board is always seeking articles for submission.
