It takes a village: wrapping up 2017 at CJSM

The end of the year, with its holidays of giving (e.g. Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and more), is a special time of reflection.

As the CJSM Associate Editor responsible for our emerging media (blogs like this, our Twitter and Facebook feeds, our podcasts) I am grateful for the community that supports these endeavors.

This group of contributors is far too large for me to mention in an exhaustive list.  But a non-random, representative sample might include:

It takes a village, as they say — and in CJSM’s case, it truly is a global village.  This worldwide community creates one of the premier sports journals in existence, one that offers one of the richest platforms for the publication of new, original research.

And it’s because of this village that I can report CJSM just received an early holiday present: this blog has been named in the top 60 sports medicine blogs (#8 to be precise) of 2017.

Joy to the world!

Thanks to all the readers of the journal and this blog, the authors and reviewers, the editors and the innumerable other members of the community with which we engage on social media.

Happy Holidays, and see you in 2018 for our first edition of the New Year.
