Abstract The aim of this study is to estimate the ratio of male and female participants in Sports and Exercise Medicine research. Original research articles published in three major Sports and Exercise Medicine journals (Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, British Journal of Sports Medicine and American Journal of Sports Medicine) over a three-year period were examined. Each article was screened to determine the following: total number of participants, the number of female participants… Expand
Sex Bias in Cohorts Included in Sports Medicine Research
TLDR
This letter highlights continued sex-based discrimination in the exercise and sports science literature by providing a targeted analysis related to one physiological parameter, cell-free DNA (cfDNA), and provides guidance on how the field should progress as a field. Expand

Female (Under) Representation in Exercise Thermoregulation Research
TLDR
It is shown that women were proportionally underrepresented in exercise thermoregulation research during the past decade and the majority of studies did not report menstrual cycle details of female participants. Expand
Methodological Considerations for Studies in Sport and Exercise Science with Women as Participants: A Working Guide for Standards of Practice for Research on Women
TLDR
The purpose of this paper was to highlight the specific considerations needed when employing women (i.e., from athletes to non-athletes) as participants in sport and exercise science-based research and address the diversity and complexities associated with female reproductive endocrinology across the lifespan. Expand
The Challenge of Applying and Undertaking Research in Female Sport
TLDR
Until a comparable applied sport science research evidence base is established in female athletes, evidence-informed approaches will remain a challenge for those working in female sport. Expand
The devil is in the details: Reporting and transparent research practices in sports medicine and orthopedic clinical trials
TLDR
The results will aid the sports medicine and orthopedics community in developing tailored interventions to improve reporting and greater acceptance of open science practices, like pre-registration and open data, is needed. Expand
The relationship between physical fitness attributes and sports injury in female, team ball sport players: a systematic review
TLDR
High-quality evidence investigating the multifactorial nature of sports injury, including the interactions physical fitness qualities have with other injury determinants, is needed to better understand the role of physical fitness in minimising sports injuries in female, team ball sport players. Expand
Representation of women in sport sciences research, publications, and editorial leadership positions: are we moving forward?
TLDR
Women are markedly underrepresented in leading authorship and editorial board positions in sport sciences, despite a ~0.5% annual increase in female first authorship in the past two decades. Expand
Sport, exercise and the menstrual cycle: where is the research?
TLDR
There still remains a significant under-representation of women included in sport and exercise medicine research studies and the complexities of the menstrual cycle are considered major barriers to the inclusion of women in clinical trials. Expand
Ten Years of Sports Health: Authorship Characteristics and Levels of Evidence
TLDR
Female authorship in Sports Health surpasses industry standards, and the percentage of high-LOE studies remains remarkably high, as evidenced by the authors’ varying degrees and numerous countries that publish in the journal. Expand

The quality of research in sports journals
TLDR
The overall pattern of publication type seems remarkably stable over medical journals, indicating that the quality of sports medicine research is comparable to that in other specialities. Expand
Are sports medicine journals relevant and applicable to practitioners and athletes?
TLDR
There is a dearth of studies addressing diagnostic and treatment interventions in the sports medicine literature, and the evidence base for sports medicine research must continue to increase in terms of volume and quality. Expand
Is there a gender difference in concussion incidence and outcomes?
  • R. Dick
  • Medicine
  • British Journal of Sports Medicine
  • 2009
TLDR
The evidence indicates that female athletes may be at greater risk for concussion than their male counterparts, and there also is some evidence that gender differences exist in outcomes of traumatic brain injury and concussions. Expand
A Sex Difference in the Predisposition for Physical Competition: Males Play Sports Much More than Females Even in the Contemporary U.S
TLDR
Patterns of sports participation do not challenge the hypothesis of a large sex difference in interest and participation in physical competition, and efforts to ensure more equitable access to sports in the U.S. (i.e., Title IX) have produced many benefits. Expand
Newspaper Coverage of Women's Sports During the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games
TLDR
There was a trend to overcome gender inequities in media coverage during the 2000 Summer Olympic Games, which may be due to the International Olympic Committee's actions to promote increased participation of women in sport activities and to publicize their achievements. Expand
Title IX, Girls’ Sports Participation, and Adult Female Physical Activity and Weight
TLDR
Results indicate that adult women who were affected by Title IX and had greater opportunity to participate in athletics while young had lower body mass index (BMI) and lower rates of obesity and reported being more physically active than women who are not afforded these opportunities. Expand
The core and hip in soccer athletes compared by gender.
TLDR
Limitations in hip and core strength and range of motion may play a role in the disparity between the male and female rate of ACL injury. Expand
Physiological Differences Between Genders Implications for Sports Conditioning
TLDR
It is suggested that there appears to be less muscle hypertrophy with strength improvement in women when compared to men, and there are no differences between genders in central or peripheral cardiovascular adaptations to aerobic training. Expand
The Role of Age and Sex in Symptoms, Neurocognitive Performance, and Postural Stability in Athletes After Concussion
TLDR
The results of the current study supported age differences in memory and sex differences in memories and symptoms and an interaction between age and sex on postural stability after concussion that warrant consideration from clinicians and researchers when interpreting symptoms, specific components of NCT, and postural Stability tests.
