Sociology of Sport Journal Outstanding Article of the Year Award - Honorable Mention

    Prize: AwardExternal award


    SSJ is Q1 Sociology and Political Science (SCImago Journal Rankings). It had a 19% acceptance rate in 2007. When published, I received this invitation to contribute a sole-authored chapter (8.14) to a reputable USA book collection:
    ... [which] pulls together some of the leading scholars in the field of sociology of sport (Richard Lapchick, Mary McDonald, Jay Coakley, Michael Messner, and Jackson Katz to name a few) and represents a substantial contribution to the field. We believe the book would be strengthened by a piece on older athletes and sport, and would welcome your contribution. (Brian Lampman, 21/12/2007).
