This is the second year of the new format of the South African Journal of Sports Medicine. When we made the change in 2017 we were confident it was going to have a positive impact on the quality of the journal. The reason for making the change to a one-issue-per-year format was primarily to speed up the time from accepting a paper to the time of publication. We reported last year that this time was reduced to about three weeks. We received positive feedback from authors and can now report this duration has been reduced to two weeks in most cases.
