The primary aim of the International Journal of Exercise Science is to engage undergraduate and graduate students in scholarly activity as authors and reviewers as they develop into professionals. In accordance with this aim, on manuscript submissions it is mandatory that at least one author be a student that has played a prominent role in the overall study (see Policies).

Announcement from the Editors
The International Journal of Exercise Science will soon be indexed in PubMed Central, the database within PubMed for open-access journals. As we have been approved for indexing, we will be contacting soon all lead/corresponding authors from manuscripts we have published from January 2008 - October 2015 to see if you want your article to be indexed for a fee of $50 USD. This fee is simply to cover our cost of having articles formatted appropriately and uploaded to the PubMed Central site. Beginning with our next issue in January 2016, we will contact authors within a couple of weeks of publishing and ask if they would like to be indexed for the same fee. This will be optional, not mandatory.

We are very pleased to become a part of PubMed Central, and we are happy to add PubMed Central to our growing list of places where you can find our articles. Other places where the International Journal of Exercise Science is indexed are EBSCO, SportDiscus, Google Scholar, and Sport Information Resource Centre (SIRC).

As always, thank you for your support of the International Journal of Exercise Science.
