The Women in Sport and Physical Activity Journal is an online only peer-reviewed journal that serves readers by providing a forum for women-centered issues and approaches to sport and physical activity. Published 3 times annually, the Journal consists of original data-based research, review essays, creative writing, book reviews, commentaries, letters and responses, and other scholarly writings relative to sport and physical activity.
Contributions across all disciplines are welcomed, in addition to a variety of approaches and viewpoints. Emphases of the journal are the development of theory about women and their physicality, the gender issues relevant to women in sport and physical activity, feminist reconceptualizations of existing knowledge, and action-oriented research. Contributions for the Journal are sought throughout the world and from traditional and non-traditional settings.
While the Journal has been in publication for over 20 years, 2004 marked the first time it was published by the National Association for Girls and Women in Sport (NAGWS). The National Association for Girls and Women in Sport (NAGWS) is a non-profit organization, located in Reston, VA. The journal was sold to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in March 2013.
