New Olympic Studies Journal
A new online Olympic academic journal has been launched - Diagoras: International Academic Journal on Olympic Studies. This publication is the result of a joint initiative by the directors of the Olympic Studies Centres at the German Sport University of Cologne (Stephan Wassong), the University of Canterbury (Ian Culpan) and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Emilio Fernández Peña).
The aim of this journal is to foster a critical and multi-disciplinary understanding of Olympism, the Olympic Movement and the Olympic Games, and to publish content that places an emphasis on the educative, pedagogical, historical, socio-cultural, communicative and sports and exercise science aspects of Olympic Studies.
The first issue of Diagoras was published online on 31 October 2017 and consists of nine articles from experienced academics and four from emerging scholars. The next issue of the journal is planned for October 2018.
