AOSSM and SAGE Publishing Launch a New Open Access Sport Medicine Video Journal: Video Journal of Sports Medicine

CHICAGO, IL - March 2021 - Video Journal of Sports Medicine (VJSM) is a new open access video journal focusing on video-based teaching and learning. It is affiliated with other journals of AOSSM including American Journal of Sports Medicine, Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine, and Sports Health.

“Digital media has transformed the educational space and expanded how we all learn new techniques, evolve our clinical care, and deliver best practices across sports medicine in the management of athletes and active people. With this in mind, the AOSSM Medical Publishing Group has developed the Video Journal of Sports Medicine,” states Editor-in-Chief Stephen F. Brockmeier, MD. Dr. Brockmeier is Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery in the Division of Sports Medicine at the University of Virginia and Director of the UVA Sports Medicine Fellowship and Team Physician for UVA Athletics.

The journal recently launched its inaugural issue and new open access content is published on a rolling basis. VJSM features an international Editorial Board and 16 partner societies. Visit the site here.

VJSM brings the power of peer review to medical video. Readers will be reassured to know that every video article in VJSM has gone through a rigorous peer review process and authors will be delighted that their efforts will result in a citable and searchable journal publication” states Bruce Reider, MD, AOSSM Executive Editor and Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Emeritus, University of Chicago. Likewise, authors are assured that each video article has its own DOI and provides them with peer-reviewed publication credit for their work.

Unique in the current orthopaedic journal landscape, VJSM articles emphasize video presentation of knowledge, with written materials serving to complement the video. Each article consists of an 8- to 10-minute video. Written elements include a short, structured abstract, a transcript of the narration of the video, the author conflict of interest declaration, and a reference list. The content includes both established and original surgical techniques, as well as patient evaluation, rehabilitation, and other nonsurgical treatment methods.
