Following on from the signed MOU in early 2017, Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) and the Clinical Exercise Physiology Association (CEPA) are now pleased to announce the joint collaboration of the universal Journal of Clinical Exercise Physiology moving in to 2018.
The Journal of Clinical Exercise Physiology (JCEP) will officially move to be the official publication of both CEPA and ESSA from the first issue of 2018. JCEP is currently published quarterly (March, June, September, December) in electronic format. It is the only global journal that focuses on clinical exercise physiology with articles including original research, contemporary reviews, case studies, and expert commentaries on topics of interest to the clinical exercise physiologist.
“This announcement is exciting news for the two organisations and seen as a significant opportunity to collaborate together and provide a global presence for our members. I look forward to growing the readership and reputation of the journal moving forward,” explains Ms. Anita Hobson-Powell, CEO of ESSA.
As the peak professional body representing qualified exercise and sports science professionals, academics and researchers across Australia, ESSA is the recognised provider of an exercise and sports science quality assurance accreditation for the profession. ESSA supports its members and the community to enhance the health and performance of all Australians.
A self-governing society affiliated with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), CEPA’s primary purpose is to advance the scientific and practical application of clinical exercise physiology, with a primary focus to advance the profession of clinical exercise physiology through advocacy, education, and career development.
“This collaboration with ESSA represents a tremendous opportunity to further enhance this important publication devoted to the profession of clinical exercise physiology. Not only will this partnership increase distribution, but it will also bring together expert contributors from our two organisations which will benefit all our members,” adds CEPA President, Dr. Dennis Kerrigan.
This announcement further outlines the collaborative relationship between ESSA and CEPA, which will develop the activities of each organisation and foster an international co-operation for the benefit of all professions and professionals involved within the respective organisations.
