Scope This series was inaugurated at a time when the sports sciences were separated from medicine. From the first volume on, the editors have united these two areas in order to bridge the gap between medicine and sport science and to give the scientific community at large, and biomedical researchers in particular, the full benefit of current advances being made in the multifaceted domains of sports medicine. Contributions from biomechanics, biochemistry, morphology, engineering, and from different areas of clinical medicine are incorporated into this innovative series.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
