Kim: 2016 Autumn Conference of the Korean Society of Exercise Rehabilitation
2016 Autumn Conference of the Korean Society of Exercise Rehabilitation will be held at the Gachon University (Seongnam, Korea), October 22 (Saturday), 2016. The topic of the 2016 Autumn Conference is “Internationalization strategy for the Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation.”
For the Autumn Conference, we have invited Dr. Min Hu from Guangzhou Sport University, China and Dr. Shahanawaz Syed from Sigma College of Physiotherapy, Sigma Group of Institute, India. Dr. Min Hu will speak about “Effects of a 8-week exercise training with diet on vascular function and cardiovascular risk factors in obese adults.” Dr. Shahanawaz Syed will speak about “Multicomponent exercise program in the management of dizziness.” These presentations will be helpful for the creation of academic knowledge and application of information in the aspect of exercise rehabilitation.
For the internationalization of the Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation (JER), the official journal of the Korea Society of Exercise Rehabilitation, JER was changed to English from Korean language since April, 2013. And then JER was indexed in the PubMed and PubMed Central. JER applied to be indexed in the Scopus in March 2014, and it has been under the official evaluation since April 2015. JER passed the panel evaluation of Scopus and then we are now waiting their final decision for indexing in Scopus. JER also passed the evaluation for indexing in Korea Citation Index (KCI) from National Research Foundation of Korea in August, 2016. The KCI is a citation index covering research in Korea.
Through the Autumn Conference, we want to identify problems and to set up strategy for the internationalization of JER. For this purpose, we prepared keynote lectures during this Autumn Conference.
The Korean Society of Exercise Rehabilitation has been trying JER to be listed in the international index DB, such as Scopus, SCI(E), SSCI, etc. The editorial board of JER has endeavored to recruit many excellent articles, to meet international standard through accurate manuscript editing, and to make JER as a leading journal in field of exercise rehabilitation. These approaches will be useful for the academic development of exercise rehabilitation as well as for the enhancement of the level of the Korean Society of Exercise Rehabilitation.
We expect to get good results in our efforts.
