Journal History

The idea for the CISS-journal was a joint initiative of the Scientific Sport Science Societies in Austria and Switzerland. After the editors of the Austrian forerunner 'spectrum der sportwissenschaften' decided to quit after 30 years of dedication in 2015, this new format was developed in a collaborative approach directed by the founding editors. The main aim is to cover the entire field of sport and exercise science to celebrate the identity of a very interdisciplinary field of scientific activities by providing a modern open-access approach for publishing high quality research.
