I am pleased to introduce our Fall compendium of the Translational Journal of The American College of Sports Medicine (TJACSM).  TJACSM is committed to serving authors with early availability of their manuscripts through continuous publication. As a result, each of these articles has been available at our website: https://journals.lww.com/acsm-tj/pages/default.aspx prior to appearing in this compendium.  Continuous publishing allows TJACSM to quickly share innovative work. For example, we recently posted an article from our colleagues at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who provided commentary on their Exercise is Medicine On Campus initiative and how it was adapted to accommodate changes due to Covid-19.  By then gathering these articles into quarterly compendiums, it allows TJACSM to offer our readers a broad array of articles that reflect the range of translational physical activity research. This Fall compendium includes manuscripts that range from a sub-group analyses from the Look AHEAD trial, to work on commercial weight loss programs.  I hope that you enjoy these articles and appreciate the new direction of TJACSM.
