Asian Journal of Sport History & Culture

Aims & Scope

Asian Journal of Sport History & Culture (AJSH&C) is a partner journal to the International Journal of the History of Sport (IJHS). Its launch in 2020 is a reflection of the remarkable growth of academic and policy analysis of Asian sport, its history, and culture, over the period since the beginning of the 21st century. AJSH&C thus aims to provide a defined outlet for stimulation of fully refereed (English language) articles, with a disciplinary base in the social sciences and humanities, which address contemporary and historical developments in Asian sport.

AJSH&C will initially publish three issues per year, and will continue to operate in conjunction with IJHS. It will maintain the position of the parent journal within the Social Science Citation Index, while providing an identity for work with an explicitly Asian focus in the field of sport history and culture.
