Special e-edition of BJSM: Pain management

Welcome to this extra e-journal edition of the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

BJSM readers, listeners and other social media followers have a keen interest in pain. It’s a big problem! So, here is an online only version of BJSM and external content just for you! This is all content that has been published before – now in one convenient spot. We mirror the format of our regular print journal with a few extras.

Going online offers some advantages. This e-journal highlights recent research in the pain management literature, outside of our own BMJ-BJSM stable, and will complement some of our own high-quality content to give readers a broad overview of the topic (note: some papers may have a paywall – log in via your organisation if you have the appropriate subscriptions to access full-text). This edition contains top research articles from JAMA, PLoS One and the BMJ within the pain management/scientific field.

Our popular podcast content is an exciting addition here that will enhance knowledge translation. Top quality pain researchers and practitioners including Professors Lorimer Moseley and Peter O’Sullivan discuss the science behind pain management and give practical tips for clinicians. This is supplemented by an infographic.

Readers are reminded, BJSM has its own online mobile application or ‘App’. This can be downloaded for Apple and Android. The App allows users to see all of the latest podcasts, blogs and other BJSM content in one easily accessible package. (It’s super for podcasts).

If you enjoy this new topical approach to present the latest evidence-based research and debate, then please do send us your thoughts via any of our social media channels. We are always looking for ways to get you, the reader, quality clincal content in the format that suits you!

Just use #BJSMOnlineEdition to involve others in the discussion.

We hope you get a chance to have a physically active day,

BJSM print and digital editors.
