International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training Online and Print Subscription
International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training (IJATT) highlights techniques in clinical sport health care, shares experiential knowledge, and presents practical applications of current, evidence-based 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 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, 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 an analysis of running barefoot versus shod, exercise and concussion, amputee athletes, a review of low-level laser therapy, and exercise-induced anaphylaxis. 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. Those who wish to stay updated on recent content may visit the IJATT website to sign up for the free notification of the table of contents, which details the articles and authors for each new issue.
Institutional subscriptions are offered in the same formats mentioned previously as well as print only. Institutional subscriptions must be placed by phone.
