Special Issue Information
The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) welcomes submissions for a Special Issue which will focus on “Sedentary Behavior across the Life Course and Associations with Health”.
Sedentary behavior recently emerged as a new focus of research which is not only due to modern life in which sitting has become the dominant posture of most activities, but also because of its associations with different health indicators. In addition, sedentary behavior is prevalent in all age groups, from (young) children to adolescents, adults and older adults, and it is present in many settings, such as the home, the school, the office or passive transportation. As sedentary behavior is such a recent research topic, several aspects still need to be thoroughly investigated. Therefore, manuscripts on the following topics (though not limited to) are welcome to be submitted:
- Factors influencing sedentary behavior;
- Interventions targeting sedentary behavior;
- Various settings (e.g., childcare, school, home, office, retirement home, transport);
- Measurement of sedentary behavior;
- The role of peers, family, teachers, members of the community, etc.
Researchers are invited to contribute novel work to be considered for publication in this Special Issue. Submissions may include original articles, short communications, or review articles (systematic review or meta-analyses). There are no restrictions regarding study design and methodology.
