<p><i>Sports Medicine - Open</i> provides an online, open access journal for the publication of research in the field of sport and exercise medicine. Like Springer’s flagship journal in the area, <i>Sports Medicine</i>, <i>Sports Medicine - Open</i> bridges the gap between science and practice in the promotion of exercise and health, and in the scientific assessment, study and understanding of sports performance. <i>Sports Medicine - Open</i> publishes reviews and original research in areas such as sports injury prevention and treatment, exercise for health, nutrition, athletic conditioning and performance enhancement.</p><p><b>Open access</b></p><p>All articles published by <i>Sports Medicine - Open</i> are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers.

If the submitting author's institution is a Member http://www.springeropen.com/libraries/membership, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable.<br/>In the case of authors whose institutions are Supporter Members http://www.springeropen.com/libraries/supportermembership, however, a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries http://www.springeropen.com/about/apcfaq/developingcountries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process.</p>
