Athletic trainers and athletic therapists must consistently be informed of the latest information and innovations in a variety of topics, despite severe constraints on the time available for research. In a concise bimonthly format, the International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training (IJATT—previously titled Athletic Therapy Today) provides insights into issues in professional practice, highlights techniques in clinical sport health care, shares experiential knowledge, and presents practical applications of current, evidence-based research. Because of IJATT’s dedication to presenting current information on the widest variety of topics, the Medical Library Association identified it as one of three source journals for athletic therapists.
IJATT contains regular columns that address the daily challenges facing athletic trainers and athletic therapists. These columns offer insights and strategies for the recognition, rehabilitation, and prevention of sport-related injuries and illnesses. Additional topics include evidence-based practice, complementary and alternative therapies, athletic training education, clinical and corporate perspectives, psychology of injury, and sport nutrition. IJATT offers publications that range from case studies and original clinical research to more comprehensive critically appraised topics and systematic reviews. These evidence-based narratives are geared toward helping sports medicine practitioners make informed clinical decisions regarding the health and well-being of physically active individuals. Each issue includes a continuing education assessment that can be completed online for BOC CEUs.
Some specific topics IJATT has recently covered are movement assessment techniques, teaching clinical ethics, and exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction. IJATT will continue to showcase articles that assist athletic trainers and athletic therapists in their daily practices.
For individual subscribers, IJATT is available in online-only or print plus online subscription formats. Both versions allow subscribers full access to the journal’s authoritative content and online access to digital archives of back issues. Institutional subscriptions are offered in the same formats mentioned previously as well as print only. Institutional subscriptions must be placed by phone.
