Dear colleagues,

I am delighted to introduce you to the very first issue of Sports Medicine International Open (SMIO), a new journal on sports medicine and exercise science!

The ever increasing number of submissions to the International Journal of Sports Medicine (IJSM) has encouraged Thieme Publishers to start a sister journal, Sports Medicine International Open. As an Open Access journal, SMIO complies with the same strict scientific standards as the IJSM, with a comparable peer review process. Apart from this, SMIO is an independent journal with its own Editorial Board, website, and submission system.

SMIO will publish original contributions reporting on all aspects of exercise and performance science, providing a deeper understanding of biomedicine. The journal will contain original pages, review articles, and letters to the editor. We invite and encourage submissions from all regions, as tremendous ideas and research work are being generated from all corners of the world. “Open Access” means that every person with an internet connection can access, read, and download these articles.

Along with the co-editors Tiago Barbosa (Singapore) and Antonio Crisafulli (Italy) I am looking forward to developing this journal for the international sports medicine community as a truly innovative platform for the exchange of research.

We thank all the authors for their interest in this journal and the reviewers for their invaluable efforts during the peer-review process. We look forward to receiving your submissions which will contribute to the success of the journal!

I hope you enjoy your reading!

On behalf of the Editors,
Moacir Marocolo
Editor, Sports Medicine International Open
