HERNANDEZ, Arnaldo José. Articles published in Brazilian journals relevant to sports and exercise medicine: a review. Rev Bras Med Esporte [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.6, pp. 455-458. ISSN 1517-8692. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-86922009000700011.
This brand-new series of articles aims at delivering to national and international readers some of the cutting-edge contributions from the Brazilian medical literature. Some of them may not be directly related to the area, but they can be the grounding for scientific research in the field of Sports and Exercise Medicine. Recently, papers published in the main Brazilian medical journals are carefully selected and analyzed by skilled medical editors. In addition, we asked editors to choose keywords to be highlighted in order to call the reader's attention. Articles are organized by area of interest to facilitate reading. To get the most of the limited available editorial space we did not include the names of the authors of the related articles in the text itself, but a complete reference guide is provided at the end of the article. The result carries the best from the original paper accompanied by a personal interpretation. Directed to the busy medical doctor, we hope that this initiative may contribute to the successful translation of knowledge from scientific evidence to clinical practice.
Keywords : sports medicine; cardiology; orthopedics; nutrition.
