BU academic appointed Editor of International Journal

Dr Ian Jones, from the Department of Sport and Event Management, has taken on a role as Managing Editor of the international journal ‘Leisure Studies’. The journal, which has been established for over 35 years, publishes theoretically informed critical analyses of a wide range of topics that constitute leisure as a subject field – including sport and physical activity, the arts, tourism, cultural, informal and virtual activities, and urban and rural recreation. His appointment continues a long standing connection between the university and the leisure studies, with BU often cited as a focal point for the subject.
