The International Journal of the History of Sport (Special Issue): Olympic Perspectives

Project details

Research objective

Since 2009 the German Sport University Cologne has a triangular research partnership with the University of Western Ontario (London, Canada) and Victoria University (Melbourne, Australia). Research collaborations are pursued in subjects such as biomechanics, exercise science, sport medicine physical education and Olympic studies. As to the latter excellent research output of the three universities should be promoted by publishing the special issue in the prestigious journal named above. The issue should contain three papers from Cologne scholars, three papers from Western scholars, and three papers from Victoria University scholars (total of 80,000 words, inclusive of notes). This would provide a tangible output for the three partner universities and provide a unique special issue of the journal that covered German/Canadian/Australian historical perspectives on the Olympic Games
