Advertising in The Sport and Exercise Scientist

What is The Sport and Exercise Scientist?

The Sport and Exercise Scientist (The SES) is the official quarterly publication of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences available free to all BASES members. It is an excellent advertising vehicle for companies and organisations wishing to reach those with an interest in sport and exercise sciences. Each quarter The SES is read by more than 2,500 BASES members.

Why should you advertise in it?

BASES members rate The SES as the number 1 member benefit. Advertising in The SES is an effective way of reaching out to the right people in the right numbers. Specific readership groups include decision makers, budget holders, laboratory directors, practitioners, lecturers, researchers, undergraduate and postgraduate students, amongst others. Each issue is often kept indefinitely to refer back to. All copies of The SES are available in PDF format in the Member Area at www.bases.org.uk

  • The Spring issue is normally available for delegates at the BASES student conference, which last year attracted 400 delegates from 60 Universities.
  • The Autumn issue is normally available for delegates at the BASES conference.
  • An e-mail is sent to all members listing the content of each issue and listing advertisers with hyperlinks.
