This issue marks the completion of the 10th year for Exerciseand Sport Sciences Reviews (ESSR) in the journal format that features shorter articles. ESSR, an official journal of the American College of Sports Medicine, has seen another exciting year of growth and improvement.

The mission of ESSR is to put forward focused articles based on contemporary, novel, integrative concepts or hypotheses that are developed by the authors and supported by their own published research. For this reason, although historical context is often presented as a foundation, articles you will find within the pages of this journal are primarily based on the authors' own work and others that contributed to these novel hypotheses. This format allows the journal the opportunity to provide a forum for cutting-edge issues and interdisciplinary topics that highlight contemporary research in exercise and sport sciences.

I extend my gratitude to the editorial board of ESSR for all they do in soliciting and shepherding these stimulating articles to press. I thank the outgoing editorial board members, who each contributed much to the journal throughout their terms: Stephen E. Alway, Ph.D., FACSM; Richard G. Carson,Ph.D.; Gregory D. Cartee, Ph.D., FACSM; Andrea M. Kriska, Ph.D., FACSM; Stan L. Lindstedt, Ph.D.; William C. Byrnes, Ph.D., FACSM. I also welcome those who are beginning terms as Associate Editors: Per Aagaard, Ph.D.; James A. Carson, Ph.D., FACSM; Donald R. Dengel, Ph.D., FACSM; Rodger Kram, Ph.D.; James N. Roemmich, Ph.D., FACSM; and as Assistant Editor: Edward L. Melanson, Ph.D., FACSM. We look forward to their contributions to ESSR.

The latest impact factor ranking shows ESSR at fourth place out of 72 journals in the sports sciences category - evidence of the continually high-quality articles recruited by the editors. Remember, ESSR is your journal, and I encourage you to continue to share your ideas, thoughts, and insights with me by sending an e-mail to [email protected].
