Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport Review

If your speciality is sport then this is a journal for you!  Science and Medicine in Sport (JSAMS) is an international refereed research publication covering all aspects of sport science and medicine and is the official journal of Sports Medicine Australia.  However, if you’re into general musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions then you will also get a lot out of this journal. Many articles are related to musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions with the research being performed on the athletic population.  In addition to this many of the topics include physical activity and therapeutic tests and techniques.

For example, see these articles that we have available in full text for our Physiopedia Members from JSAMS this month:

A really nice addition to this journal is the provision of a series of podcasts highlighting particular issues through a series of interviews with authors, researchers, and practitioners. In addition they aim to include discussions in more general terms matters of relevance to sports medicine and sports science.
