This last issue of 2009 marks the end of our second year with Lippincott Williams and Wilkins as our publishing partner. We have published some outstanding articles in the 2009 volume. This is the first volume in several years we have published issues specific to a single sport, the Special Topics Issue: Baseball and the Special Topics Issue: Tennis. We have additional special topics issues planned for 2010. The content of the articles and columns continues to improve, as we continue to bridge evidence-based research with practice.

Perhaps even more exciting is the “electronic” future of Strength and Conditioning Journal. With the new SCJ webpage, managing information relevant to your interests will be easier than ever! The new site developed with LWW will offer you several new features to help you search, organize information, and view the content that is most relevant to you. Some of the new features available to you will include the following:

  • You will find information on important content, such as featured articles, “Editors Picks,” “Most Viewed” and “Most Emailed” papers.
  • There are new ways to customize the site, including saved searches, personal article collections, e-mailing manuscripts, and RSS alerts sent to your email or cell phone.
  • You now have the capability of exporting references into your favorite citation manager and exporting figures from full-text articles into PowerPoint presentations.
  • You can now access to Publish-Ahead-of-Print papers and easy-to-find supplementary materials.
  • You will find links to other NSCA publications and NSCA news.
  • You will also find “SCJ Collections” consisting of articles and/or columns based on a specific topic.
  • Links are provided that will provide you with the abstracts from the latest NSCA National Conference as well as the latest NSCA Position Statements.

If you have not done so already, I strongly encourage you to visit the website at http://journals.lww.com/nsca-scj. As you explore the new website, note the many features that you can take advantage of as a member of the NSCA, and how these features can be used to meet your specific needs. In the future, we will be adding even more new features such as video links to SCJ articles. These new features will make it easy for you to identify, save, and group the articles and columns that are of interest to you!
