Dr. Jörg Krieger is Assistant Professor in Sport and Social Science at Aarhus University. He was formerly employed at the Institute of Sport History and Olympic Studies Centre of the German Sport University Cologne, where he completed his PhD. His main research fields are the history of doping and anti-doping, transformation processes in the International Association of Athletics Federations, the history of the Olympic Movement, and the Youth Olympic Games. In 2016, Jörg published his monograph "Dope Hunters" with Common Ground. In the book, he examines the evolution of scientific knowledge within the international anti-doping community that coalesced during the second half of the twentieth century. Jörg has published in leading international journals and is a member of various international academic networks.
Articles published in The International Journal of Sport and Society are peer-reviewed by scholars who are active members of the Sport & Society Research Network. Common Ground Research Networks uses a two-way anonymous peer review system. The publisher, editors, reviewers, and authors all agree upon the standards of expected ethical behavior as based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Core Practices. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the collection, or scholars who have volunteered to referee articles and have been screened by Common Ground’s editorial team. This engagement with the Research Network, as well as Common Ground’s synergistic and criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes our peer review process from others.
Serving as a Member Volunteer Peer Reviewer is a great way to begin your path to the journal's Editorial Board. If you are not already on our list of Member Volunteer Peer Reviewers, please consider joining.
We also offer the opportunity to join the Editorial Board of qualified reviewers and content evaluators. Editorial Board members are expected to complete a minimum of 5 reviews per calendar year. We are happy to work with graduate students, too – an excellent professional development opportunity as our Editorial team helps educate on the nature of the role, process, and rigors of peer review.
Alongside the important role of reviewing research and helping to guide the direction of the collection, there are other benefits of joining the Editorial Board: Official Recognition Letter / Certificate; recognition of role on the website, email, and social media communication; CGScholar credit that can be used for any offerings provided in any one of Common Ground Research Networks.
