International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training Online Subscription
International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training provides insights into issues in professional practice, highlights techniques in clinical sports health care, shares experiential knowledge, and presents practical applications of current research.
The responsibilities assumed by athletic trainers and athletic therapists demand continually updated knowledge on a variety of topics and impose severe constraints on the amount of time available for reading. 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 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 focuses on publishing content that is clinically relevant and derived from review of research literature—thereby providing support for evidence-based clinical practice. In the past year, IJATT has featured articles addressing influenza in athletes, determining readiness to return to play after exertional rhabdomyolysis, and the neurophysiology behind signs and symptoms of concussion. In futures issues, IJATT will continue to present a broad range of topics relevant to clinical care for sport injuries, optimization in sport performance, and professional issues affecting clinicians in the field. The journal also includes a column addressing clinical practice innovations and controversial professional issues written by John Parsons of the Arizona School for Health Sciences.
IJATT contains regular columns that address the daily challenges facing athletic trainers and athletic therapists. These columns offer tips for counseling athletes, injury-management techniques, prevention strategies, alternative and complementary concepts, athletic trainer education, functional rehabilitation, clinical and corporate perspectives, clinical evaluation and testing, and sport nutrition. In addition, IJATT offers book reviews and articles addressing a physician’s perspective on athletic training and therapy, disabilities and special needs, and professionalism and ethics. Each issue also includes a guest editorial by a professional in the field of athletic training or athletic therapy and a quiz on certified assessment that can be completed online for free BOC CEUs.
IJATT is also available in an online format, which provides subscribers with the same authoritative content of the print edition but with additional advantages, including the ability to search entire issues in seconds and access to back issues. The content of the online version is available weeks before the print version arrives by mail, and online subscribers can receive the table of contents of each issue by e-mail when a new issue is published. In addition, the popular BOC CEU quiz is now available exclusively in the online format. You can view the results of your quiz immediately and track your personal quiz history. Earning BOC CEUs has never been easier than it is now with an online subscription to IJATT.
