Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to present this Special Issue about applied biomechanics in sports performance, injury prevention and rehabilitation. Improvements in modern technology devices have allowed sport scientists to collect more and more detailed information on sports fields and movement performance analysis. The availability of a wide range of kinetic and kinematic parameters has produced significant improvements in our capacity to analyse various aspects of sports performance.

In addition, biomechanical studies have enabled the development of efficient movement patterns, proper postural habits and energy conservation through the economy of movement. Proper biomechanical analysis can help athletes detect these potential problems before injury occurs, allowing athletes to make conscious changes in the way they move and reduce the risk of injury. Finally, the study of biomechanics is used in physical therapy to quantitively measure the changes in movement that have occurred and design programmes to help return movement to normal or improve the athlete's ability to control their body movement.

The main objective of this Special Issue is to cover the latest advances in biomechanics applied to improve sports performance, prevent the risk of injury or facilitate optimal rehabilitation in athletes.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
