They guarantee the quality of layout, printing, graphics and illustrations. The layout is provided by, Schleissheimerstraße 6, 80333 Munich, Germany. The journal is printed on acid-free paper by Creo Druck Bamberg, Gutenbergstraße 1, 96050 Bamberg, Germany.

The Publication Committee handles all publication rights and has a contract with the current publisher, which acts as de facto publisher on behalf of the German Association of Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. The Publication Committee is a Registered Non-Profit Association for Promotion of Sports Medicine (Verein zur Förderung der Sportmedizin Hannover e.V.). The members of the Publication Committee are 16 regional members of the German Society for Sports Medicine and Prevention (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sportmedizin und Prävention -DGSP) who elect a Board of Directors to serve as the Publication Committee and oversee editorial operations. The Association's General Assembly elects the Editor-in-Chief every four years and approves the budget. The association's board of directors appoints other editors and board members on the recommendation of the editor-in-chief and other DGSP committees; the board controls the budget and financial relations with the publisher. The Editor-in-Chief acts independently in accordance with the Editorial Policies of the Journal proposed and adopted by the Editorial Board (Editor-in-Chief, Editors) of the Journal and approved by the Publications Committee.

The Publisher ensures that proven recommendations are followed, for example, in guidance to the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals by ICMJE and in guidance to the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing (joint statement by COPE, DOAJ, WAME, and OASPA) (1, 2). The German Journal of Sports Medicine (GJSM) is also guided by the recommendations of PIE-J: The Presentation & Identification of E-Journals (NISO RP-16-2013).
