The editor-in-chief is Cheryl A. Cooky (Purdue University). According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2019 impact factor of 2.635.[1] Sociology of sport analyses the sport from methodological and a theoretical perspective. There are numerous different sub-sections to be examined when it comes to sociology of sport like: class, race, and gender. With sport being an international topic where different sports are being played in different countries there will always be a combination of races in any sport. The major sports followed around the world with a variety of races involved such as: basketball, soccer, baseball, football are prime examples where Caucasian, African American, and Asian people are together on the same team. Very often in sport, economic class plays less of a role due to the fact that many sports are played through elementary and high school, there are varsity teams that students, regardless of class, can participate in.
