Our New Journal! 

 

The IFSP Executive Board is pleased to announce our journal partnership with a long-standing IFSP member, the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the American Physical Therapy Association. We have agreed to adopt the NAJSPT as the official journal of the International Federation of Sports Physiotherapy. To reflect the international focus of this Journal, the name of the publication was changed to the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, beginning with Volume 6, Number 1 on March 1, 2011.

 

IJSPT graphics 

The IJSPT is a peer-reviewed journal reviewing manuscripts that relate to all aspects of sports physical therapy for possible publication. Although all manuscripts will be reviewed, preference will be given to evidence-based papers with strong clinical content that will immediately affect the daily clinical practice of the sports physical therapist. The IJSPT supports the protection of human subjects and requires Institutional Review Board approval and informed consent of subjects.

 

IJSPT is indexed in PubMed, CINAHL and Sports Discus.

 

We believe that this partnership will allow our organization, as the official sports physical therapy subgroup of the World Confederation of Physical Therapy, to continue to advance our specialty through the peer-review publication process around the globe.

 

Three subscription options are available to IFSP member organizations for participation in the IJSPT project. Please take an active role in supporting our partnership with the Sports Physical Therapy Section and the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy.

 

Option 1: Membership Benefit Subscription Plan

The IFSP Member Organization financially underwrites the cost of IJSPT subscriptions for its entire membership or is willing to include the cost of the IJSPT subscription as a mandatory part of their annual dues structure.

 

Option 2: Membership Option Subscription Plan

The Member Organization will collect subscription fees as part of their annual dues process, with subscribing to IJSPT as an optional transaction.

 

Option 3: Membership Promotion Subscription Plan

The Member Organization will promote IJSPT to its membership through print and on-line publications. Subscriptions will be processed directly between the individual member and IJSPT

through the Journal website.

Dear Colleagues,

 

I hope these pictures will inspire you to come to the Netherlands to attend our IFSP meetings as part of the World Congress. Along with meetings, scientific presentations and clinic visits, we are working with NVFS, the Dutch member organization, to develop a social programme. Amsterdam is a very old and beautiful city, and I am looking forward to showing you around.

 

Hotel accommodations:

I have been able to make arrangements with a hotel in Amstelveen. This is a suburb of Amsterdam, only 5 kilometres away from the RAI convention centre that can be reached by tram in 15 minutes. The tram station is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Bus service is also available to the tram station. The hotel is 20 minutes away from Schiphol Airport. The rooms are large, with two beds and a separate bath. You can easily share a room with someone else.
