Date: 17 November 2016

Dr Stephen Hills, senior lecturer in Sports Business Management, has been invited to sit on the editorial board for the Journal of Applied Sport Management (JASM). His duties will include reviewing and generating manuscripts on an annual basis, sharing current issues and trends in sports management and participating in editorial meetings.

Dr Hills was asked to sit on the editorial board in recognition of his research, which has been conducted in collaboration with many industry partners. He will consult with the editor on the direction of the journal, review articles submitted for publication and encourage others to submit their work to the journal.

Dr Hills has conducted research in partnership with many high-profile sports organisations, including the NFL, Nike, Fulham Football Club and England Boxing. These research projects feature heavily in his teaching of Sports Development and Research Methods and have paved the way for exclusive guest lectures, site visits and placements for his students. His excellence in research-led teaching was recently acknowledged by the University who bestowed upon him its highest teaching accolade of a University Teaching Fellowship. This quality has translated into student satisfaction, with the Sports Business Management course scoring a 100% satisfaction rating in the latest NSS survey.

Stephen said: “It is an honour to be asked to sit on the editorial board of the Journal of Applied Sport Management. At the heart of the mission of this journal is working with the industry and being accessible to all.

“This is close to my heart and reflects my own research agenda where I work with many London based sports organisations. My research has to be accessible to the sports organisations I work with and also to my students in order to deliver research-led teaching.”

JASM is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal which provides the latest research into all aspects of applied sport management, including marketing, law, economics and finance.

Its mission is to develop, advance, disseminate, promote and preserve knowledge within the academic discipline of sport management.
