RESEARCH PAPERS

OVERVIEW

As part of the Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Sport Administration and Technolgy Program, the AISTS Research Paper requires each MAS participant to carry out in-depth research on a sports-related issue and deliver a short paper (20 pages) that meets specific academic criteria. Conducting high-quality research represents a key asset of the program as sport organizations recognize the critical value of high-quality knowledge and unique expertise in decision-making.

Since the start of the AISTS master’s program in 2003, more than 500 Research Papers have been completed. To foster the value of the Research Paper, a selection of the best papers is edited for publication in an annual volume of the AISTS-book “Collected Insights from the Field of Sport” and an electronic copy is deposited at the Olympic World Library for public consultation. Moreover, each year the IOC officially rewards the best research paper with a special prize and public recognition.

Volume 1: Football and Society

This book is the first in its kind from the International Academy of Sports Science and Technology (AISTS) and provides practical insights in several aspects of the management of football. It does not provide a total solution to the many problems within the game but it aims to be a showcase of what can be achieved with the cooperation of academics and higher education participants.

Volume 2: Sustainability and Legacy

The collection examines a number of recent challenges and themes related to sustainability and legacy. With a number of wide-ranging recommendations proposed by the six authors, there is at least common consensus found across all papers. In order for Sustainability and Legacy initiatives to succeed, they require top management commitment, integration into the organisational strategy as well as company-wide buy-in.

Volume 3: Governance and Ethics

The collection examines a number of recent challenges and themes related to sustainability and legacy. With a number of wide-ranging recommendations proposed by the six authors, there is at least common consensus found across all papers. In order for Sustainability and Legacy initiatives to succeed, they require top management commitment, integration into the organisational strategy as well as company-wide buy-in.
