Scope

BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation is an open access, peer reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of sports medicine and the exercise sciences, including rehabilitation, traumatology, cardiology, physiology, and nutrition.

The journal also incorporates the now closed Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Rehabilitation, Therapy & Technology (SMARTT), retaining the broad scope of this journal and some of the Editorial Board.

It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.

Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Rehabilitation, Therapy, Technology (SMARTT)

The journal Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Rehabilitation, Therapy, Technology (SMARTT), has transferred to the BMC series of journals and has been re-launched as BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation.
