I am pleased to introduce the Spring 2023 compendium of the Translational Journal of The American College of Sports Medicine (TJACSM). TJACSM uses a continuous publication approach. As such, this group of articles appeared online prior to being published in this collection. Moreover, we continue to offer this without publication fees. This allows TJACSM to provide a level of access without fees to authors that is unique in the field. I hope that you will consider TJACSM as the outlet of choice for your translational research.

Our Spring compendium highlights multiple steps across the translational process. Hales and colleagues present data from a pilot trial of a telehealth weight loss program, Elish and colleagues report key moderators of physical activity on academic outcomes, and Halliday and colleagues present 24-month follow-up data from the MAINTAIN trial. Thus, these publications include the design of interventions along with differential responses to physical activity and longitudinal effects. As such, they reflect the goals of TJACSM to support research across the full translational process. As always, we thank our authors for their contributions and for entrusting TJACSM as the outlet for their research!​
