AUTHOR WITHDRAWAL POLICY
An author is free to withdraw an article at no charge-as long as it is withdrawn within a week of its original submission. After a week, there is a withdrawal fee.

REVIEW AND PUBLISHING POLICY
It is understood that all authors listed on a manuscript have agreed to its submission. The signature of the corresponding author on the letter of submission signifies that all conditions declared by JSSM web page have been fulfilled and accepted. Each submission should include the Copyright Transfer Statement signed by all authors.

JSSM use double blind review process. Upon receipt of a manuscript the editor will notify the corresponding author that the submission has been received. Received manuscripts are first examined by the JSSM editors and check about Plagiarism by using a commercial software program. Manuscripts with insufficient priority for publication and presence of Plagiarism are rejected promptly. Manuscripts not prepared in the advised style will be sent back to authors without scientific review. We encourage authors to suggest the names of potential reviewers, but we reserve the right of final selection. The manuscript will undergo a double blinded review process. Under this process the editor will forward (electronically) the manuscript to two independent reviewers. Normally the review process will take approximately 4 weeks. After the review process has been completed the main author will be notified via E-mail either of acceptance, revision or rejection of the manuscript. If the main author has not been informed of the results of the review process after 8 weeks from the date of confirmation of receipt of the manuscript (by the editor), the author should notify the editor-in-chief directly. If revision was recommended, this should be completed and returned to the editor within 4 weeks, failure to return the revised manuscript within the allotted time span will lead to rejection of the manuscript. When a manuscript has been accepted for publication it will be forwarded to the editor-in-chief for final approval. The editor-in-chief will work with the main author to make necessary revisions in order for the manuscript to appear in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine. The final proof of the manuscript will be sent to the main author as an E-mail attachment. If the main author requires any minor changes to the finished work, these should be submitted electronically to the editor-in-chief within one week.

The authors of manuscripts accepted for publication must transfer authors' fee to the bank account of the publisher. Failure to payment will result in the manuscript not being accepted for publication. Manuscript accepted in the first quarter of the year will be published not later than the third quarter of the year.

PERMISSIONS
Materials taken from other sources must be accompanied by a written statement from both author and publisher giving permission to the Journal for reproduction. Obtain permission in writing from at least one author of papers still in press, unpublished data, and personal communications.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:
Please include a brief biography, approximately 50 words per author, for each author including (1) academic title/degrees, (2) institution affiliation, (3) research focus, (4) post and e-mail addresses and (5) photograph produced in JPEG format.

TABLES, FIGURES, VIDEO, ANIMATION ETC: The location within the article where e.g. figures and tables appear should be indicated in the text. These materials (e.g. table, figure) should be submitted separately from the text document. Each item should be produced in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, or PowerPoint), GIF or TIFF format. Electronically produced drawings, graphs, photographs, photomicrographs, animation and video are all acceptable. Limit still art files to 700 kilobytes of memory and use 96 dpi resolution or consult with the editor-in-chief. Please have original photos or negatives available to submit on request of the editor-in-chief. Clearly identify digitally enhanced images as such and describe the method of enhancement. Include internal scale markers where appropriate. The author is responsible for ensuring that persons pictured in photographs have provided informed consent for the use of their picture. Please include the photographer's name with each photograph so that he or she can be properly acknowledged. Submit each item separately and number sequentially as (main author) Figure 1.jpg, (main author) Figure2.jpg, and so on, for example, GurFigure1.jpg, GurTable1.doc, GurVideo1.avi. Video clips should be less than 8 seconds in length; segments of greater length should be broken into a series of shorter clips. Make sure that each video clip is referred to within the body of the manuscript, together with an appropriate description of it.

Tables
Tables capture information concisely, and display it efficiently; they also provide information at any desired level of detail and precision. Including data in tables rather than text frequently makes it possible to reduce the length of the text.

Type each table with double spacing on a separate sheet of paper. Number tables consecutively in the order of their first citation in the text and supply a brief title for each. Do not use internal horizontal or vertical lines. Give each column a short or abbreviated heading. Authors should place explanatory matter in footnotes, not in the heading. Explain in footnotes all nonstandard abbreviations. For footnotes use the following symbols, in sequence:

*,†,‡,§,||,¶,**,††,‡‡

Identify statistical measures of variations, such as standard deviation and standard error of the mean and give the variations in parentheses.

Be sure that each table is cited in the text.

If you use data from another published or unpublished source, obtain permission and acknowledge them fully.
