It’s hard to believe 2015 is wrapping up–as I write, it’s already New Year’s Eve in places like Australia and New Zealand, where members of the Australasian College of Sports Physicians [the ‘ACSP,’ one of our affiliated societies] live.
This time of year is one of reflection and thanks. As I look back on 2015, it is remarkable, I think, to reflect on the many high points this journal enjoyed in its 25th year. The year began with the highly anticipated position statement on musculoskeletal ultrasound, authored by members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine [‘AMSSM,’ another one of our affiliated societies]. Mid-year we published a statement that made a huge splash in the research world and the wider, lay media: the Statement from the proceedings of the 3rd International Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia Consensus Conference. And we wrapped things up with a controversial study looking at the limitations inherent in screening for sudden-cardiac death in young athletes.
Thank you. May you have a wonderful New Year’s, and may 2016 be a professionally fulfilling year for you all. We look forward to advancing the science of clinical sports medicine with you all. And before the clock ticks down the final seconds of 2015, we welcome you to see our annual CJSM blog report, below.
Cheers! See you in 2016!
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 37,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 14 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
