SAGE launching new sports medicine journal in 2009: Sports Health: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Sports Health is a bi-monthly publication that will publish its first issue in January 2009. It is aimed at physicians and allied health professionals who work with athletes.

"The comprehensive care of athletes requires a diverse team of professionals, including athletic trainers, physical therapists, primary care physicians and orthopaedic surgeons," said Edward M. Wojtys, MD, Sports Health Editor-in-Chief. Dr. Wojtys is a professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Chief of the Sports Medicine Service, and Medical Director of MedSport, all at the University of Michigan. "Our goal with this publication is to improve the care and rehabilitation of athletes."

Sports Health features associate editors from each of the collaborating organizations. Editor-in-chief Dr. Wojtys was nominated by AOSSM. Dr. George Davies of SPTS is the co-founder and previous co-editor of the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy. Dr. Matthew Gammons of AMSSM is the primary care sports physician at the Killington Medical Clinic and the Vermont Orthopaedic Clinic where he currently works with patients incurring a variety of sports-related injuries. He also serves as one of the team physicians for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard teams. Dr. Riann Palmieri-Smith of NATA is an Assistant Professor in Athletic Training, Movement Science and Orthopaedics at the University of Michigan and has served as a Section Editor for the Journal of Athletic Training in the Pathology, Physiology, and Biodynamics section.

SAGE is pleased to be partnering again with AOSSM, for whom we currently publish the American Journal of Sports Medicine. We are also pleased to be working for the first time with such prestigious organizations as the AMSSM, NATA and SPTS in the launch of this important new journal, said Jayne Marks, SAGE Vice-President, Global Business Development. The publication of Sports Health helps solidify SAGEs position as a leading publisher of high-quality, cutting-edge information for medical professionals and researchers.
