About the Aspetar Sports Medicine Collection 

Aspetar Sport Medicine Collection is a two-volume limited edition book of more than 1400 pages; Volume 1 focuses on topics in Sport Science, Medicine of Sport, and Exercise and Lifestyle Medicine, and Volume 2 addresses management of sports injuries of the upper and lower extremity. Our editor-in-chief, Prof. Dr. Nebojsa Popovic and his co-editors carefully curated the best 200 Aspetar Sports Medicine Journal papers written by more than 300 international experts. The selected papers are organised through sections and chapters like a classic textbook of Sports Medicine.

We launched the Aspetar Sport Medicine Collection Online Forum Series to provide FREE access to the latest evidence-based Sports Medicine and Science information covered in the two volumes to an international audience of clinicians, coaches and athletes.

Each month, starting in November 2020 until the FIFA World Cup in November 2022, the respective Chiefs of Chapters will be discussing different topics related to the 24 chapters of the Aspetar Sports Medicine Collection. We will ‘unlock’ one section of the Aspetar Sports Medicine Collection each month, making it available for FREE download.

The online forum discussion will be recorded and shared on Aspetar’s YouTube channel www.youtube.com/Aspetar.

Aspetar Sports Medicine Collection aims to assist health professionals and students, coaches, and athletes to improve their understanding of Sport and Exercise Medicine and make better decisions when caring for athletes. This can only be achieved through open access sharing of sports medicine and science knowledge, an initiative we take pride in to support and promote.
