Special Editions

Sports and Exercise Medicine – Open Journal (SEMOJ), also known as sports medicine, is concerned with physical fitness, injury treatment, and prevention in sports and exercise.

Previously, physicians were professionally trained and deployed in sports teams to treat injuries sustained during a game. Sports medicine emerged as a distinct field in the late twentieth century, and significant efforts have been made within the public health community to encourage people to become more physically active.

SEM specialists are pioneers in diagnosing and treating any condition that may arise during routine exercise or sports activity. Musculoskeletal injuries are treated separately from other conditions such as exercise-induced asthma, diabetes in sports, female athlete triad, screening cardiac abnormalities, unexplained underperformance syndrome, and so on.

However, Openventio aims at the widespread propagation of sports and exercise medicine and research through its Open Access (OA) journal for the welfare of the sports community.

The process of submission, review and the final outcome is remarkably fast with SEMOJ. Despite the review process being rigorous and double-blinded, we got the feedback real quick. Moreover, following our address of the comments from the Reviewers, the final decision made was communicated within just a few days. Subsequently, the proof was ready and the paper was published within a week. This is reflective of the journal’s professionalism, and as authors, we are highly satisfied with the overall experience.

We are most impressed by the SEMOJ manuscript submission process. We received confirmation of all submissions, reviews were completed in a very timely manner and where assistance was needed from Editorial staff they were most helpful. The galley proof process was expeditious, with amended proofs sent following every submission. Lastly, the final layout of our paper is most professional and provides a high-quality representation of our research. Thank you for your assistance during the process from submission to publication.
