Recreational Sports Journal updates
Get the most from this valuable member benefit
The Recreational Sports Journal (RSJ) is the scholarly publication of NIRSA and is sent free to all Professional and Student Members. Its purpose is to provide a source of empirical, theoretical, and applied research to the field of recreational sports. Below are some updates on how you can access past articles and issues and even publish your own research.
RSJ keycodes (which are different from your NIRSA member email address and password) are generated by NIRSA publisher Human Kinetics and provided to NIRSA for distribution. They expire one year after activation, at which time a member can request a new keycode. If you would like to access the current and back issues of the RSJ but need a keycode, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. A keycode will be sent to you with instructions.
Search for back issues
Back issues through 2000 are available from the NIRSA Education & Publication Center. In early 2008, the entire collection of back issues, dating back to the first issue from March 1977, will be available online. This will be a huge asset for those doing research or needing reference citations.
Submit articles for publication
Consider submitting an article for publication in a future issue. Guidelines for authors and suggested topic areas are printed in the back of each journal and on the NIRSA website. All articles are submitted electronically through Manuscript Central, which allows authors and editors to conduct the submission and review process in an easy, convenient, and paperless environment.
Paul Milton, Assistant Professor at Ashland University, continues as the RSJ editor. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact him.
