C&S is a cutting-edge, peer reviewed journal published in affiliation with the International Association for Communication and Sport that features research which fosters international scholarly understanding of the nexus of communication and sport. With over 800 annual pages and six bi-monthly issues, C&S publishes research and critical analysis from diverse disciplinary and theoretical perspectives to advance understanding of communication phenomena in the varied contexts through which sport touches individuals, society, and culture.  C&S examines both communication in sport and the communication of sport by considering sport in light of communication processes, strategies, industries, texts, and reception. C&S welcomes studies of sport and media in mass and new media settings, research on sport in interpersonal, group, organizational, and other communication contexts, and analyses of sport rhetoric, discourse, and narratives. C&S encourages studies of sport communication and media from broad disciplinary vistas including sport studies/sociology, management, marketing, politics, economics, philosophy, history, education, kinesiology, health, as well as cultural, policy, urban, gender, sexuality, race, and ability studies. C&S is theoretically diverse, and articles featuring qualitative, quantitative, critical, historical, and other methods are equally welcome. C&S is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).​​
