OCTOBER 2015 ISSUE 66MD ISSN 1471-8138 46DY ISSN 1744-9383 editorial

So most of you will probably have noticed that we’ve consolidated both sportEX medicine and sportEX dynamics into one journal. The front section of this new combined journal is dedicated to the physical therapy content (ie. the articles we’d usually publish in sportEX medicine) and the

back section is dedicated to the manual therapy content (ie. the articles we’d usually publish in sportEX dynamics). The main reason for the decision is that firstly an overwhelming majority of our readers subscribe to both journals (not really that surprising given the discounts we offered to do this), secondly because most of our jobs include quite a lot of cross-over, it seemed to make sense. A third reason is that because there is much more flexibility in terms of content segmentation on the new website, we wanted one journal which brought everything together, instead of risking repeating content across two journals, which I’ve always tried very hard not to do. For example I frequently deliberated when I had to decide which journal I should publish content on either taping or the psychology of rehabilitation. Both are key channels of content on the new site and both are relevant to physical and manual therapists. The last reason is that it is significantly more expensive and environmentally more toxic for several reasons, to print and mail two magazines, many of which were ending up going through the same letterbox, but due to the fact that we had some individual subscribers on each list, we always had to post them separately. We’ve done our best to make the transition as smooth as possible

but if you have any questions, comments or feedback then please feel free to email me directly ( I hope you like the changes and enjoy a packed October issue of the print journal.
