On 24 June 2021 the first Research Workshop organised by an Institute was hosted by the Institute of Business Economics and its Research Centre for the Sports Business. The event was supported by the Research Management Office of Corvinus University of Budapest.
The aim of the Research Seminar was to obtain the professional experience of a prominent international researcher in the field of sports management regarding publication opportunities and strategies. The interactive online lecture was held by Dr Pamela Wicker, Professor at Bielefeld University (Department of Psychology and Sports Science). Her main research areas include sports organisations, the social significance of sport, the relationship between participation in sport and health, and the relationship between sport and the natural environment. She has a strong international publication record and excellent citation data. She is experienced in both qualitative and quantitative methods and is (or previously was) a member of the editorial boards of six Q1 and two Q3 journals.
In the first part of the event, Professor Wicker gave a presentation open to all university academics on the profiles of the most important international journals in sports economics and offered suggestions on how to publish in them. In the second half of the day, she gave detailed feedback on six working papers submitted in advance and suggested improvements to the authors.
The working papers covered a variety of topics and methodologies, including professional football, sport and public procurement, sports event management and sports in the workplace. In the future, we are planning to submit the improved papers to peer-reviewed international journals, and we are also considering a long-term relationship with researcher Pamela Wicker.
