The October issue of Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews is available. 

This issue features a Commentary on the ESSR 2021 Paper of the Year. The American College of Sports Medicine Publications Committee established an annual Paper of the Year award in 2020 for each of ACSM’s journals to recognize the demonstrated excellence in scientific and scholarly publications. The Paper of the Year is selected by each journal’s editorial board based on the criteria of significance and impact of the article. Read the ESSR 2021 Paper of the year, “Strength Training: In Search of Optimal Strategies to Maximize Neuromuscular Performance” by authors Jacques Duchateau, Séverine Stragier, Stéphane Baudry, Alain Carpentier. 

The Editorial Board has recruited the following excellent articles:

"Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews: 2021 Paper of the Year"

"Forebrain Network Associated with Cardiovascular Control in Exercising Humans​"
We have tested the hypothesis that a forebrain neural network modulates autonomic function during exercise in humans.

Translational Significance of the LINE-1 Jumping Gene in Skeletal Muscle"
Long INterspersed Element 1 (L1) is a mobile genetic element that is involved with muscle aging. However, exercise can downregulate this mechanism.

Cardiovascular Adjustments Following Acute Heat Exposure"
Numerous cardiovascular adjustments occur following passive heat exposure. These adjustments may predict the long-term adaptations associated with chronic heat therapy.

The Nervous System as a Pathway for Exercise to Improve Social Cognition"
The promotion of autonomic balance and social brain networks may explain the association of endurance exercise and social cognition.

 Exercise Counters the Age-Related Accumulation of Senescent Cells"
The beneficial effects of exercise are in part mediated through the prevention and elimination of senescent cells.

Impact of Mechanical Circulatory Support on Exercise Capacity in Patients with Advanced Heart Failure"
Overview of mechanisms limiting functional capacity and exercise tolerance among patients with heart failure supported by mechanical circulatory support devices.

ESSR is a quarterly publication that features forward-thinking content written by invited authors either to provide the rationale for a novel hypothesis (Brief Reviews) or to summarize work on a contemporary issue and identify the key gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed to move the field forward (Perspectives for Progress). More details on the requirements for each type of article can be found at https://edmgr.ovid.com/essr/accounts/ifauth.htm. ACSM professional members receive a subscription to this journal as a member benefit​.
