In this review article, we aim to explore and promote dialogue regarding the use of contemporary qualitative research methods being used in sport management. The first section is a snapshot of qualitative research from 2011 to 2013 in the three main sport management journals: Sport Management Review (SMR), the Journal of Sport Management (JSM), and European Sport Management Quarterly (ESMQ). Secondly, we comment on this snapshot, outlining not only how far we have come in qualitative research in sport management but also drawing attention to some of the constraints to its current use. Thirdly, we illustrate what might help us to reflect on our use of qualitative research methods. This leads us to our final section, in which we utilise that reflection to outline some ways forward; how can we contribute to sport management by using qualitative research methods in imaginative and innovative ways?
7. Conclusions and new directions
In this review, we have sought to provide avenues for alternative directions in qualitative research in sport management. Moreover, we have articulated our reasons why we believe that we need to promote such change. Our snapshot of 2011– 2013 provides an overview of reasonably recent offerings in our area. Clearly, there are multiple reasons for staying with the tried and tested versions of qualitative research that dominate our field. Yet, we argue that in order to develop our field, we need to challenge our thinking and embrace some alternative methods, some of which we present here.
