AIMS AND SCOPE

Aim

The primary aim of the journal is to publish research, reviews and reports on various aspects of skeletal muscle function assessment technologies and its application in injury prevention, recovery and rehabilitation of injuries, sports training and performance enhancement, occupational medicine and work ergonomics. The contributing authors are strongly encouraged to submit articles with emphasis on technology and its application in sports, exercise, injury prevention, rehabilitation, occupational medicine, and clinical fields.

Audience

The journal is targeted for clinicians, orthopaedic surgeons, sports scientists, physiotherapists, rehabilitation experts, strength and conditioning coaches, athletic trainers, occupational medicine and work ergonomics practitioners, sports and exercise science researchers and students, engineering and technology researchers and sports governing bodies.

Disciplines

The journal content and scope is broadly divided into seven sub-categories:

1. Sports injury prevention and rehabilitation

2. Training and performance

3. Occupational medicine and work ergonomics




4. Clinical and physiological research

5. Technological advancements in functional muscle diagnostics

6. Development Physiology

7. Biosensors and wearable motion technologies

Peer Review

All manuscripts that meet the criteria of initial screening will be subjected to the process of a double-blind peer review process. Manuscript submitted to the journal gives the publisher the right to publish that paper if accepted. Manuscripts may be edited to improve clarity and expression. Submission of a paper to Advances in Skeletal Muscle Function Assessment is understood to imply that it has not previously been published and that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere.

Ethical Standards

All submissions to the Advances in Skeletal Muscle Function Assessment must contain experiments that conform to international ethical standards. The authors should declare that all experiments on human subjects were conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki, (http://www.wma.net) and that all procedures were carried out with the adequate understanding and written consent of the subjects. The authors should also certify that formal approval to conduct the experiments described has been obtained from the human subjects review board of their institution and could be provided upon request.


The Editors reserve the right to return manuscripts in which there is any question as to the appropriate and ethical use of human or animal subjects. Submission of a paper to Advances in Skeletal Muscle Function Assessment is understood to imply that the required ethical standards have been met by the researchers.

Conflict of Interest

Any financial and/or personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work must be disclosed by all the authors. Potential conflicts of interest can include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding.

RECENT ISSUES

ASMFA Journal Volume 1, Issue1


We are finally ‘over the bar’.

I am absolutely delighted to announce the first issue of the journal – Advances in Skeletal Muscle Function Assessment
(ASMFA). It has been about a year since the first brick was laid in Vienna with the members of the International Society of Tensiomyography (ISOT) coming together to finalize the concept, structure, intent and direction for the journal.

Hope you enjoy the issue and find it purposeful in your work.

ASMFA Journal Volume 1, Issue 2


‘Two down and a lot to go’. The second issue wraps-up the first volume of the journal. It has been a tremendously
rewarding year for the ASMFA editorial team and we are only getting better with time. New plans and
partnerships are being worked out for an aggressive growth of the journal and to provide the authors with

greater scholarly incentives to publish in the journal.
