Welcome to the initial compendium for Exercise, Sport, and Movement (ESM), a momentous occasion for ESM, ACSM, and our publishing partner, Wolters Kluwer. ESM is ACSM's first fully open-access journal and only came into existence early in 2022. While we had an initial goal of publishing our first article before the year ended, there was a lot to do to get to that point, including building an editorial team, creating the submission site on Editorial Manager, and a lot of marketing through our other journals and across our social media platforms. And here we are now with our first compendium, highlighting the graphical review published by senior author Stu Phillips (you can read more about the article in my accompanying editorial). ESM's future compendiums will have lots of articles and information to share, therefore I will use this initial post to thank the entire ESM team, including the associate editors, the journal's managing editor Stephanie Custer, the ACSM publications committee and publications staff, and our great partners at Wolters Kluwer. I'm excited to bring you ESM's initial compendium, and even more excited to share what is coming for the rest of 2023 and beyond.
