About the prize
In 2021 Managing Sport and Leisure (MSL) will commence its ‘Early Career Researcher Award’ (ECRA). This award is awarded to an early career or junior researcher in recognition of an outstanding contribution to our journal. The award is based on a newly submitted manuscript to the journal specifically for this award. The author will be recognised through an interview on their career, aspirations, and research, which will be published in an issue of MSL. Additionally, authors will receive a £150 voucher for Routledge books, a one-year free subscription to MSL and their published works will be made free access for a period of time.
