As Editor-in-Chief, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved on the success of the International Journal of Strength and Conditioning (IJSC). In 2021 we transitioned from the IUSCA Journal to the IJSC and subsequently published 24 articles and two IUSCA Position Statements, all free-of-charge!
The great quality of articles submitted has made the task of choosing an 'article of the year' extremely challenging.
However, there has been one standout article, which we have received unmatched interest in, and which has been widely praised as a 'seminal' and 'landmark' piece of research on training for hypertrophy. Indeed, it has now had over 65,000 views.
We are therefore delighted to announce that the International Journal of Strength and Conditioning (IJSC) Article of the Year 2021 is:
To the strength and conditioning community, researchers and academic institutions who consider the IJSC as a means of communicating their research findings, you have all contributed to the growing success of the International Journal of Strength and Conditioning. The response from our readership has been overwhelming.
I am privileged to work with such a committed group of experts within our Journal Management team and Editorial Board. Our team us truly international, with representatives from the UK, Australia, USA, Columbia, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, Brazil, and New Zealand. Your contributions ensure the long-term success of the International Journal of Strength and Conditioning. I liken your efforts to that of the ‘unseen hours’ that athletes put into mastering their craft. Your unseen hours do not go unnoticed. Thank you.
We are only able to publish this 'diamond open access' resource due to the support and donations from individuals, organisations, and institutions around the world. If you appreciate the IJSC, please consider making a tax deductible donation.
On behalf of the International Universities Strength and Conditioning Association and International Journal of Strength and Conditioning I wish all a safe and prosperous 2022.
