The Indianapolis, IN-based American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) on April 5 epublished the first issue of its new peer-reviewed journal, Translational Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine (TJACSM) at journals.lww.com/acsm-tj.

The new online journal publishes original research, clinical trials, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and policy research addressing the translational implications of basic, clinical, and policy science to everyday, real-world practice in sports medicine and exercise science.

“This new journal will place ACSM in the forefront for translational and policy science related to exercise,” said TJACSM Editor-in-Chief Joseph E. Donnelly, EdD, FACSM, a professor of internal medicine and director of the Energy Balance Laboratory and Center for Physical Activity and Weight Management, Cardiovascular Research Institute at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.

Plans call for publishing new articles every other week. Donnelly and the editorial board also envision periodic special issues focusing on current topics in translational sports medicine and exercise science. Content will be free for a time, then will be provided as an ACSM member benefit and available for individual and institutional subscriptions. Wolters Kluwer, headquartered in Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, publishes TJACSM.
