JSAMS Plus is an official journal of Sports Medicine Australia (SMA) and a companion title to the highly-respected Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport (JSAMS). JSAMS Plus is an online-based scientific journal that focuses on quick publication of high-quality research and on facilitating rapid scientific exchange about published results and their meaning. The choice of article categories was made to reflect these intentions and allow the submission of manuscripts from studies that may not meet typical journal article structures everywhere. We encourage authors of studies: with small sample sizes (when convincingly justified, e.g. in elite athletes' research) replication studies (which may not be considered innovative enough by others) and null findings studies (provided this is not due to methodological shortcomings) to submit their work. This does not mean that such studies will be acceptable "automatically" for JSAMS Plus. The same scientific quality criteria will be applied as they are established for journals like JSAMS. This means that implications from small sample size, replicative character and lacking statistical "significance" will have to be appropriately discussed. However, JSAMS Plus strives to utilize opportunities of an online-based (open access) journal in a new manner by speeding up processes without losing quality. The manuscripts must be from one of the following areas relating generally to the broad sports medicine and sports science fields: sports medicine sports injury (including injury epidemiology, injury prevention and rehabilitation) physiotherapy podiatry physical activity and health sports science (including biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control and learning, sport and exercise psychology and sports nutrition) public health (as relevant to sport and exercise). Animal studies will not be considered. Manuscripts with an interdisciplinary perspective with specific applications to sport and exercise and its interaction with health will also be considered as well as studies based on a qualitative methodology for data collection and analysis. Authors who are unsure about the fit of their manuscript to these criteria may consult the editorial office prior to submission.

Informations To Know

Quartile Each subject category of journals is divided into four quartiles: Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4.
Q1 is occupied by the top 25% of journals in the list; Q2 is occupied by journals in the 25 to 50% group; Q3 is occupied by journals in the 50 to 75% group and Q4 is occupied by journals in the 75 to 100% group.

H-Index is a metric that is commonly used to evaluate the productivity and impact of individual researchers, rather than journals. However, some researchers have proposed adapting the h-index to measure the impact and prestige of scientific journals.
The h-index for the journal is the highest number of articles that have received at least that number of citations.
For example, if a journal has published 100 articles, and the most highly cited article has been cited 50 times, the h-index for the journal would be 50.
