As you are no doubt aware, regular and sustained participation in physical activity is beneficial for almost every facet of human health. However, disparities in the levels of physical activity and health differ within and between countries. Not only does physical activity behaviour and health differ by geographical location, but also by the demographics of those residing in each location (e.g. socio-economic status (SES), ethnicity, age, sex, sexual orientation). This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Physical Activity and Health”, offers an opportunity to publish high-quality, multi-disciplinary research relating to physical activity and health (physical and mental) by geographical location and/or across various settings (e.g. occupational settings). We are particularly interested in research that compares physical activity profiles and health profiles between geographical locations. We also welcome papers investigating physical activity profiles and health profiles between the demographics of populations (e.g. high SES versus low SES or between the ethnicities) within geographical locations. Manuscripts utilising any method are welcome (e.g. epidemiology, evaluation of interventions, reviews, or those of a qualitative nature). All manuscripts will be peer reviewed by experts in the field and should be submitted by 31 October 2019.
