Gabbett, Tim J. and Blanch, Peter (2019) Research, urban myths and the never ending story [Editorial]. British Journal of Sports Medicine, 53 (10). pp. 592-593. ISSN 0306-3674


Abstract

A changing world. In the modern technological age, practitioners are exposed to a wealth of information from many diverse sources. Social media has resulted in rapid distribution of research evidence. As soon as an article appears on the journal website, those with the fastest fingers and thumbs will have the paper ‘posted’, 'tweeted’ or ‘blogged’. Without doubt, social media has assisted researchers to distribute their findings to (hopefully) enhance translation to the ‘real world’. But how well does a single 140-character ‘tweet’ encapsulate the findings of a complete research study (which may range from 3000 to 5000 words)?
