The Journal of Sports Science and Medicine (JSSM) is a non-profit making scientific electronic journal, publishing research and review articles, together with case studies, in the fields of sports medicine and the exercise sciences. JSSM is published quarterly in March, June, September and December. JSSM also publishes editorials, a "letter to the editor" section, abstracts from international and national congresses, panel meetings, conferences and symposia, and can function as an open discussion forum on significant issues of current interest. The journal content could be presented not only in print (pdf format) but also through the use of video, audio and interactive software since it is published in an electronic format. Authors, therefore, are encouraged to submit their article or communication in the most appropriate medium to best convey their findings to members of JSSM.

Indexed in SCI Expanded, Focus on: Sports Science & Medicine, SciSearch, PubMed, PubMed Central, ProQuest (Physical Education Index), CAB Abstracts, SCOPUS, Index Copernicus, EBSCO, SPORTDiscus, DOAJ, J-Gate, GALE, GoogleScholar, ERA and SPONET.
