Since April 2019 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. 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.
