Germany, Mar 15, 2013: Since 2001 the ECSS has launched the European Journal of Sport Science (EJSS) as its official peer-reviewed journal. The EJSS consists of original research articles and intra- and interdisciplinary reviews of the sport science research from scientists worldwide. It is published bimonthly, six issues per year, both in print and as online editions. Registered with an impact factor the EJSS is accepted for Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports®. Over the last years the EJSS has steadily grown with the number of gradually increasing submissions each year. The succinct articles and multimedia illustrations of a multidisciplinary EJSS cover the natural, biological, medical, behavioural, and social science as they pertain to sport and exercise. Besides these state-of-the-art research articles the EJSS also contains the ECSS Position Statements, published regularly.
“This marks a significant achievement both for the journal and for ECSS. A Medline listing will increase the journal’s visibility, bringing our articles to the attention of many more researchers, educators, practitioners and sports science students throughout the world. In turn, this will result in more citations for the articles we publish, along with more submissions to the journal. More citations will give us a higher impact factor, and this will create even more interest. In short, I believe a Medline listing creates a virtuous circle which can only lead to stronger submissions and a higher quality journal. I would like to thank our Section Editors, Editorial Board, reviewers and authors for making this success possible; it represents appropriate recognition for the high-quality research we have published in EJSS over many years.” Prof. Andrew Jones, Editor in Chief. —- ECSS
