Sports Engineering is the official journal of the International Sports Engineering Association. Founded in 1998 it is the longest running journal in the field of Sports Engineering and Technology and publishes quality international articles on engineering and technology in sport.
The Journal intends to fill the niche area which lies between classical engineering and sports science and aims to bridge the gap between the analysis of the equipment and the athlete. The Journal acts as a forum where research, industry and the sports sector can exchange knowledge and ideas.
The journal transitioned to Continuous Article Publishing in 2019. This means that what was Special Issues are now Special Collection, which essentially means a virtual online collection of papers under a set topic. This a positive development for our journal, as it gives us greater flexibility over Special Issues/ Collections.
In July 2019 Tom Allen was appointed as the new Editor in Chief. Many thanks to Lloyd Smith for his service to the journal over the last few years. Our new editorial board is listed below.
In September 2020 we appointed Dr Hugo Espinosa, Lecturer at Griffith University as our new Assistant Editor.
