Student Research Competition 2015
The North American Society for Sport Management is pleased to announce its annual student research competition. To be eligible for this competition, students MUST be enrolled in a college or university at the deadline of submission (11:59pm Thursday January 15, 2015), AND not be employed in a full-time academic position at the submission deadline. Students may not submit more than ONE paper for this competition, and if accepted for presentation, this paper will count toward the two-presentation maximum for the NASSM Annual Conference.
Papers should reflect a student’s analytical and/or theoretical research interest and be appropriate for presentation at the NASSM Annual Conference. The winner of the student competition will have an opportunity to present this paper at the President’s Luncheon during the NASSM Annual Conference (June 2 - 6, 2015, Ottawa, Ontario).
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSION
Each submission must also be an Authorship Declaration form signed by both the student's academic advisor and the student. If the paper constitutes part of a broader research project undertaken by the student and/or advisor, a note as to how the submitted paper represents an original, independent contribution by the student (i.e., single author) must be provided in the Authorship Declaration. The research paper cannot be submitted for any other presentation at the conference, nor should it have been previously undergone scholarly peer review, or have been presented/accepted for publication in other scholarly outlets.
Papers must be received electronically
The Student Paper Review Committee will evaluate all submissions using a blind review process based on the following criteria:
BENEFITS OF SUBMISSION
Students will receive constructive comments and suggestions from the reviewers on how the paper may be strengthened for possible presentation and publication. The student winner will be recognized by NASSM with the following awards:
The top three finalists (other than the award winner) will each receive a $250 (US) award in addition to a waiver of the conference registration fee. These three finalists may be asked to present their paper as a 20-minute oral presentation at the 2015 NASSM Conference.
