Abstract

This study documented the perceived quality/prestige of English language serials publishing biomechanics research by sport and exercise scholars. The 2006 membership of the American Society of Biomechanics was surveyed by electronic mail and asked to rate the typical quality/prestige of 62 serials on a five point scale. Mean ratings were calculated for the eighteen respondents from the Exercise and Sport Science interest area (13% response). Mean ratings showed that sports biomechanics scholars view the prestige of serials differently than the Thompson Scientific Impact Factor (IF). Sports Biomechanics was rated moderate to high in prestige, while ISBS Proceedings were rated as moderate prestige.
