- July 2018 – BJSM has always been at the forefront of knowledge translation. Our dedication to social media to further a clinician’s access to the information that enhances practice cannot be questioned. To that end, our July cover featured a graphic designed to highlight our IOS and Android mobile app and other social channels. The edition has FREE access to an umbrella review of physical activity and cancer. It also features an interesting OPEN access editorial on the use of placebos in the sporting environment – https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/52/13/817
- August 2018 – Our final cover of the 2nd round and last entrant into the competition is possibly our most artistic. To highlight the recent ‘Sporting Mind’ conference in London we had our in-house medical illustrator, Vicky Earle (@drawinnature) design a striking image of the brain. The edition also featured one of the most influential consensus statements we have published to date on the assessment, treatment and prevention of ankle sprains. FREE access is available here: https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/52/15/956
That completes the 2018 line-up and you now have access to the remaining four covers in this 2nd round.
You may wish to vote based on your favourite artistic image (which we hope you will) but also feel free to vote for cover of the journal you found had the biggest impact on your practice.
