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.
The International Journal of Exercise Science publishes proceedings for a number of regional, national, and international conferences and meetings.
To simplify referencing as well as site navigation, we have assigned each conference or related organization its own “volume," and thus each year’s proceedings for that conference is an “issue." For example, The Texas Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine is Volume 2, and then each of its conferences has its own issue number.
If you are affiliated with an organization that holds research conferences within Exercise Science or a related field, and you are interested in having the International Journal of Exercise Science publish your proceedings, then please contact us at this email address: email@example.com.
While our most recently updated volume is listed in its entirety below, here you can find additional links to recently published proceedings from our other chapters and organizations:
(2014) Texas Regional Chapter Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine
(2013) Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine
(2013) International Society of Exercise and Immunology Symposia Proceedings
Please note that all publications on the International Journal of Exercise Science Conference Proceedings site are abstracts, not full manuscripts. To see if a full research manuscript has been published from one of the abstracts on this site, we suggest that you contact the lead or corresponding author.
