Anyone interested in sport history, sociology, philosophy, or other socio-cultural studies can subscribe to H-Sport.  Membership in ISHPES is not necessary and subscription is free.

Junior Scholars are encouraged to submit their name and project title to the Thesis & Dissertations in Progress list, maintained on H-Sport. H-Sport also announces new books published on sport each quarter, and ISHPES members are encouraged to share their books with the H-Sport community.
