Publications

Since 1983 all authors who present papers at the meeting have been encouraged to submit their papers in manuscript form to be considered for publication in the Special Technical Publication (STP) that results from the peer review and editorial process of ASTM (www.astm.org).

Starting with the 2015 meeting in Italy, the ISSS is looking to move to a different platform of publication. This is in response to member’s requests that their work be published in an indexed journal for ready reference and accessibility. We will update on this situation as soon as it is clarified.

We believe that this ongoing effort has produced the standard for the world assemblage of a relevant body of literature dealing with safety in winter sports as well as the prevention and treatment of injuries sustained by participants in these activities. The fundamental goal of the International Society of Skiing Safety is to improve the sport of skiing and associated activities by reducing the risk of injury and producing better and more enjoyable means of participating in all these winter sports activities.

A major accomplishment of each of the ISSS meetings has been the publication of the proceedings of the presentations given during the congresses. These publications are listed below:

To purchase past ISSS/ASTM publications (individual papers and/or full conference proceedings) visit http://www.astm.org/DIGITAL_LIBRARY/SYMPOSIA/PAGES/F27.htm.  To purchase an individual paper, the usual cost is $25.00 per paper (as a pdf). Often, it makes more financial sense to consider purchasing the whole book of conference papers rather than purchase two or more papers.
