About the Journal

​​As an official clinical journal of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), Current Sports Medicine Reports is unique in its focus entirely on the clinical aspects of sports medicine. This peer-reviewed journal harnesses the tremendous scientific and clinical resources of ACSM to develop articles reviewing recent and important advances in the field that have clinical relevance. The journal’s goal is to translate the latest research and advances in the field into information physicians can use in caring for their patients.

To accomplish this goal, the journal divides the broad field of sports medicine into 12 sections, each headed by a physician editor with extensive practical experience in that area. The current sections include:

  • Head, Neck, and Spine 
  • General Medical Conditions 
  • Chest and Abdominal Conditions 
  • Environmental Conditions 
  • Sideline and Event Management 
  • Training, Prevention, and Rehabilitation 
  • Exercise is Medicine
  • Nutrition & Ergogenic Aids 
  • Extremity and Joint Conditions 
  • Sport-specific Illness and Injury 
  • Competitive Sports 
  • Special Populations
Additionally, each issue includes a “Web Alert” feature to keep you up-to-date on the latest sports medicine sites on the Internet, a “CAQ Review” to help you prepare for your exam, a “Pearls & Pitfalls” section designed to provide insightful commentary on hot topics evolving in the field, a “Scanning Sports Medicine” section to keep you current on the latest research done by your ACSM colleagues, and an “ACSM Clinician Profile” section in which a prominent ACSM physician member provides his or her perspective on where the field has been and where it needs to go. You won’t want to miss an issue!
