Dear Colleagues and Friends!

It is our great pleasure to present the 2023/September issue of Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine. In addition to 10 excellent papers by leading authors from as many countries, this issue is of additional importance to all of us. Namely, a few months ago, the most relevant citation databases; Scopus and Web of Science released their data on Journal-citation-indexes. On that occasion, Scopus categorized Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine in Q2 in the Physical Therapy, Sport Therapy and Rehabilitation category, and in the Rehabilitation category, along with Q3 in the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine category, with SJR of 0.39, indicating significant progress in one year period. Even more important was the fact that the Web of Science awarded Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine with an Impact Factor of 1.3. With these achievements, the Journal itself is recognized as one of the most important and relevant publications in the field of sports sciences in Southeastern Europe.

The Montenegrin Journal of Sports Science and Medicine strongly supports the conference "Sport, Physical Activity and Health: Contemporary Perspectives", which is held regularly in April in Cavtat/Croatia. We are therefore pleased to announce that the next conference will be held 18-to-21 April 2024 (, and we cordially invite you all to join us in the inspiring environment in one of the most beautiful parts of the Mediterranean.
