We have the pleasure to inform you that the ”Palestrica of the Third Millennium – Civilization and Sport” Journal, founded in 2000 as a journal of medicine applied to sport, civilization, health and medical rehabilitation, will change its name to ”Health, Sports & Rehabilitation Medicine”, starting with issue 1/2019.
The first issue of the Palestrica of the Third Millennium journal was published in August 2000, year in which two other issues were released. Since 2001 the journal has been published quarterly. At present, the journal is edited by the “Iuliu Hatieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Cluj-Napoca and the Romanian Medical Society of Physical Education and Sports, in collaboration with the Cluj County School Inspectorate.
The name was changed at the suggestion of prestigious international databases in which the journal is indexed, considering that the term Palestrica, derived from palestrae – cultural, scientific and sports amphitheaters in ancient Greece, is relatively little known. The new name is aimed at adapting the profile of the journal to scientific contemporaneity in the field of medical and pharmaceutical sciences and interdisciplinary integration with health, physical activity and biopsychosocial rehabilitation.
The change of the title will allow an increased visibility of the journal, with a view to its inclusion in the ISI Thomson Reuters database.
The journal will have the same contents: editorials, original articles, review articles, case reports, recent publications, events.
The journal is open for publication to all members of the national and international scientific community and offers the possibility to promote young people involved in research, along with top researchers in the above mentioned fields
The journal does not charge a fee neither for processing papers, nor for publishing papers.
