JSSM is an electronic journal that aims to present easy access to scientific knowledge for sport-conscious individuals using contemporary methods. The purpose is to minimise the problems like the delays in the publishing process of the articles or to acquire previous issues by drawing advantage from the electronic medium. In this context, forming a discussion channel among the researchers would present a further opportunity to address any question or problem immediately. JSSM would also facilitate to display non-conventional materials like video clips, animations, colour photos, etc.
