International Journal of
Strength and Conditioning
The International Journal of Strength and Conditioning (IJSC) is the world's first academic journal in S&C and Sport Science to be 'Diamond' Open Access.
This means that it is 100% free to publish and read.
The IJSC was developed by the IUSCA after recognising the need for innovation and progression within the field to ensure that evidenced based research is available to the entire sports science community.
Often, research will take several years to be published, be subject to high publications costs, and the content will then only be accessible through a paywall.
Furthermore, in order to help bridge the gap between academia and the field of practice, there is a need to open up publication to a broader range of academics, students, coaches and other practitioners.
The IJSC has a leading Editorial Board and is indexed widely through the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the Directory of Open Access Scholarly Resources (ROAD), and Google Scholar.
