The BJSM Editorial Board is committed to promoting Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Sports and Exercise Medicine (SEM).
We recognise that research infrastructure and support are not equal across the globe, and that this can be a barrier for some researchers to gain experience and be successful at all levels of the scientific process: from designing and conducting research, to data analysis, writing and publishing quality manuscripts, and securing research funding.
However, there are many potential SEM research opportunities in diverse regions of the globe that will help answer important questions through effective collaboration.
The BJSM Global SEM Mentoring Program aims to facilitate global collaboration by “matching” experienced SEM researchers with researchers who would benefit from mentorship in their research process. A specific focus will be to assist researchers from low- and middle-income countries conduct high quality research relevant to SEM.
To be explicit, the BJSM Global SEM Mentoring Program does not provide research funding, but rather connects (through shared interests) experienced researchers with young or less experienced investigators.
