Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sports science and sports medicine provide scientific assessment of sports performance and bridge the gap between science and practice. Sports science and sports medicine aim to improve sports performance and prevent sports injuries. By measuring and analyzing the physiological and biomechanical data, it is possible to increase the efficiency of exercise and improve the performance of athletes. It is believed that there are scientific methods to recover after injury safely and effectively. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health aims to foster a multidisciplinary discussion on up-to-date scientific data in this area, and therefore, we invite authors to submit original research or specific reviews that can improve the understanding of sports science and sports medicine. The scope of the Special Issue includes basic or applied sports sciences related to keywords below, such as exercise and training for improvement of sports performance and injury prevention. We invite original research or specific reviews on sports science and sports medicine that bridges the gap between theory and practice. Given a sufficient sample size, even negative results about exercise and training for injury prevention are considered worthy of the publication in this Special Issue.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Sports.

Dr. Norihiro Shima
