As it is already well-known, our journal, Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, provides an ideal forum for exchange of information on aspects of sports science and medicine; all clinical aspects of exercise, health, and sport; exercise physiology and biophysical investigation of sports performance; sport biomechanics; sports nutrition; rehabilitation, physiotherapy; sports psychology; sport pedagogy, sport history, sport philosophy, sport sociology, sport management; and all aspects of scientific support of the sports coaches from the natural, social and humanistic side, in various formats: original papers, review papers, editorials, short reports, peer review - fair review, as well as invited papers and award papers. However, made a step further in this process and I am so proud to announce our journal has been indexed in Thomson Reuters Core Collection last issue.
In recent years, the Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine has continued to show important advances in both the content and quality of its published articles, and the volume of submissions has increased substantially. Since the end of 2015, over 100 manuscripts have been processed (peer- and editorial-reviewed, and accepted or rejected). Now indexed in 48 databases, Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine has kept recognition as one of Montenegrin leading scientific journals in the area of sports science and medicine. This is reflected in its new status at “scientific sky”, as recognized by the Thomson Reuters, the Emerging Source Citation Index (ECSI). Additionally, Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine has earned a current score of ICV 6.81, as reported in the IC Journals Master List 2014, as well as it is at the last stage of inclusion in Scopus database. As a consequence of these accomplishments, on behalf of our authors, journal board members and anonymous reviewers, all of people who have volunteered to contribute to the success of the journal, I have a pleasure to invite additional members to join us in an effort to make the Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine widely recognized international publication.
Finally, we wish to encourage more contributions from the scientific community and industry practitioners to ensure a continued success of our journal. Authors, reviewers and guest editors are always welcome. We also welcome comments and suggestions that could improve the quality of our journal.
