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. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the journal, or scholars who have volunteered to review 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 The International Journal of Sport and Society peer-review process from journals that have a more top-down approach to peer review.

The International Journal of Sport and Society reviewers are assigned to articles based on their academic interests and scholarly expertise. In recognition of the valuable feedback and publication recommendations that they provide, reviewers may request an official letter/certificate.
