Fair Play. Journal of Sport: Philosophy, Ethics and Law is an electronic journal devoted to the analysis  of sport from the point of view of the philosophy, ethics and the theoretical-legal perspective. Beside the philosophical concern, the journal will accept works coming from the legal field given the evident connections that arise in many occasions with philosophical issues. The journal is directed mainly to researchers, professional and advanced students. It has a biannual periodicity and his issues will be published in April and October.

It is an honour and a pleasure to be associated with this new journal Fair Play, Journal of Philosophy, Ethics and Sports Law. It is a welcome edition to the small, but growing field of scholarly journals dealing with philosophical, ethical and legal issues in sport.  The journal aims to publish current and contemporary articles from philosophers, lawyers, sociologists, pedagogues, psychologists and administrators.   It will provide another platform for the rapidly expanding international and multi-lingual community of academics and practitioners to share ideas and engage in debate. As such it is the first journal to publish articles in both Spanish and English. The journal has a truly international feel with the editorial board featuring some of the foremost scholars in the field.  I look forward to reading the journal and encourage scholars to support the journal by submitting work to be considered for publication. With the support of the scholarly community the journal can establish a reputation for publishing excellent research in the field.  It has been a pleasure to see Philosophy of Sport grow as a discipline over the years and its health today is down to the hard work and enthusiasm of individuals like José Luis Pérez Triviño who seek to provide new opportunities for scholars to present and publish their work.  I wish the journal every success.
