British Journal of Sports Medicine
British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM) is a multi-media information portal that provides original research, reviews and debate relating to clinically-relevant aspects of sport and exercise medicine. We contribute to innovation (research), education (teaching and learning) and knowledge translation (implementing research into practice and policy). We use web, print, video and audio material to serve the international sport and exercise medicine community.

Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering
The primary aims of the Journal are to provide a means of communicating the advances being made in the areas of biomechanics and biomedical engineering and to stimulate interest in the continually emerging computer based technologies which are being applied in these multidisciplinary subjects. The Journal will also provide a focus for the importance of integrating the disciplines of engineering with medical technology and clinical expertise. Such integration will have a major impact on health care in the future.

High quality research articles form the main body of the Journal. These contributed papers will cover both the engineering and clinical aspects of computer methods in biomedical engineering. Topics covered include the mechanical response of bone and bone/tissue/implant analysis, tissue mechanics, mechanobiology, modelling of biomaterials, material identification, human body impact, motion analysis, kinesiology, mechanotransduction, computer assisted surgery, surgical simulation, computer animation, computational and systems biology and medical imaging. Dental mechanics, biofluids, cardiovascular mechanics, soft-tissue modelling and joint/ligament mechanics are also topics of primary importance. As well as providing a forum where advances in these complex areas can be published and discussed in open academic debate, the Journal also contains special issues and feature articles, techical notes and reviews, and short communications.

Ergonomics, also known as human factors, is the scientific discipline that seeks to understand and improve human interactions with products, equipment, environments and systems. Drawing upon human biology, psychology, engineering and design, ergonomics aims to develop and apply knowledge and techniques to optimise system performance, whilst protecting the health, safety and well-being of individuals involved. The attention of ergonomics extends across work, leisure and other aspects of our daily lives.

The journal Ergonomics is an international multi-disciplinary refereed publication, with a 50 year tradition of disseminating high quality research. Original submissions, both theoretical and applied, are invited from across the subject, including physical, cognitive, organisational and environmental ergonomics. Papers reporting the findings of research from cognate disciplines are also welcome, where these contribute to understanding equipment, tasks, jobs, systems and environments and the corresponding needs, abilities and limitations of people.

European Sport Management Quarterly
The European Sport Management Quarterly (ESMQ) publishes articles that contribute to our understanding of how sport organizations are structured, managed and operated. Founded by the European Association for Sport Management, the Journal sets out to enhance our understanding of the role of sport management and sport bodies in social life and the way social, political and economic forces and practices affect these organizations.

ESMQ covers all types of sport organization and examines public, voluntary and commercial sport bodies, both amateur and professional; businesses that produce sport-related commodities; and service organizations in the sport industry. ESMQ also explores how non-sporting bodies, such as the state, regulatory authorities, sponsors and so forth, affect the structure and processes of sport organizations. While the Journal welcomes papers with a European perspective, it has a broad geographic range and encourages comparative studies and articles with an international perspective.

Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science
Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science aims to advance the science and philosophy of human-centered design. The journal focuses on a broad array of theoretical issues, methodology, and philosophical dialogues within the science of human factors and ergonomics, and is a highly respected forum for interdisciplinary discussion within this field, cutting across the design, engineering, technology, and management of human-compatible systems in the broadest sense. The Journal is proactive in its mission to develop a unique discipline, and seeks to define and promote theories of ergonomics as distinct and inherently valuable for the global knowledge community, including human factors scientists and engineers, ergonomists, industrial designers, industrial engineers, systems engineers, design engineers, cognitive and organizational psychologists, occupational health specialists and human-computer interaction specialists.

Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science emphasizes new knowledge, publishing original, high-quality, peer-reviewed papers as well as commissioned reviews and peer-reviewed commentaries. Topics include both qualitative and quantitative methodological frameworks and theories of ergonomics. The Journal presents papers that discuss principles of the investigative process in ergonomics research, social and historical issues, and science of science perspectives on ergonomics. Papers that examine the discipline itself, including bibliographical analyses of classic papers, are also published.

Unlike other ergonomics journals that deal primarily with applications, Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science focuses on theoretical aspects of the science, such as causality and the underlying aspects of behaviour in a complex human-technology-environment systems sense. Above all, the Journal provides a vehicle for the dissemination of research on the underpinning scientific foundation of the discipline of ergonomics that no other publication covers. It creates the opportunity to consider the newest approaches of associated domains and to implant them in work system design. Authors are encouraged to discuss extensive and coherent theories that stimulate future empirical and modelling research within the ergonomics discipline.
