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 Publications 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 Publications and oversee editorial operations. The Association's General Assembly elects the Editor-in-Chief every two 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.
