VICIANA, J.; MAYORGA-VEGA, D.  and  BLANCO VEGA, H.. Psychometric properties of the perception of justice in reading sport press questionnaire. CPD [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp.81-99. ISSN 1989-5879.

Introduction. The present study analyzes the psychometric properties of the perceived justice in reading sport press questionnaire. The concepts of the organizational theory of Greenberg (1987) and the perception of justice questionnaire of Colquitt (2001) within the job sphere were adapted to the sport press domain. This, due to the fact that there does not exist an instrument that measures the influence of sport press reading on the perception of justice in sport press readers. Method. The sample consisted of 220 university students (166 men y 54 women, with an average age of 20.72 ± 3.08 years). Exploratory and confirmatory analyses were conducted in order to analyze the factorial structure of the questionnaire within two different sub-samples randomly divided. Results. The results showed the viability and adequacy of a three-factor structure (informational justice, interpersonal justice, distributive justice) with adequate fit indices of reliability and validity, and showing strong evidences of stability of the obtained factorial structure. Discussion. Having a valid instrument for measuring the perceived justice of readers caused by the reading of sport press could give rise to new research lines in the area of sport psychology. These research lines could cause new knowledge in the future for sport psychology, which could indicate a better way to act in in sport media events.
