Abstract

This April issue (Vol 2, No 2, 2000) of JEPonline represents the journal’s second year in existence. It is a journal that currently has free access to all who can access the internet, requires no financial costs by the authors to submit or publish, and provides two versions of manuscripts (HTML and PDF) for easy on-line reading or printing.

This April issue also happens to be the largest single issue of JEPonline to date, with eight manuscripts. When you view the contents of this issue, pay attention to each of the topics and location of the corresponding authors. You will see that exercise physiologists and clinicians from around the world view JEPonline to be a viable alternative to more traditional research publication. The April issue provides research that either directly or indirectly represents countries not only from the US, but also from South America, Great Britain, Spain, Australia and Switzerland. An international presence has been a consistent feature of the journal, and clearly reveals the “power” of the internet to provide free research dissemination across borders and oceans. Surely this is how research dissemination should be; unlimited by finances, politics, surface mail, or language barriers...

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
