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: editor@intjexersci.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:
(2017) Central States Regional Chapter Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine
(2017) Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine
(2017) Northwest Regional Chapter Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine

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.

Current Issue: Volume 2, Issue 10 (2018) Texas Chapter Conference Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine
