Systematic Review Competition

Surfer’s Paradise: The venue for this year’s ACSP conference — it really is paradise.

As the Australasian College of Sports Physicians (ACSP) has kicked off, I have been reflecting on the relationship CJSM has with that  organization, as well as the relationship we have with our other affiliated societies: our founding society [Canadian Academy of Sports and Exercise Medicine (CASEM)], the American Osteopathic Academy for Sports Medicine, and the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM). We are so happy to work with this collection of inspiring and influential societies, taking care of athletes and active people around the globe.

One of the current initiatives we have launched to engage members of these societies (especially those in training, the residents, fellows, and registrars of the different organizations) is a 2016 Systematic Reviews competition.

In our January issue, our Executive Editor Chris Hughes announced this competition: ‘We are excited to announce our new Systematic Reviews competition which will run until the end of this year. Authors are invited to submit their systematic reviews on relevant sports medicine topics to CJSM. The authors of the winning systematic review will receive a cash prize of US$1500, and will see their work published in the Journal. Those of you who submit high-quality reviews but who do not quite make the prize will also see their work published in the Journal, so there is a great incentive for everyone to submit your reviews.”
