Special Issue Information
The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) welcomes submissions for a Special Issue of the journal which will focus on “24-Hour Movement Behaviours in Children”.
Recently, behavioral research in children has shifted away from focusing on one single behaviour into focusing on the behaviours of children within a 24-hour time span. Activities that are conducted within 24-hours can be categorised as either physical activity, sedentary behaviour or sleep. These behaviours interact, which means that spending time on one or more of these behaviours has an influence on the time that can be spent on other behaviours. New 24-hour movement behaviour guidelines have been established for (preschool) children, showing the great importance and novel aspect of this topic. This also means that several aspects still need to be thoroughly investigated.
Therefore, manuscripts on (though not limited to) the following topics are welcome to be submitted:
- Factors influencing 24-hour movement behaviours in (preschool) children;
- Interventions targeting 24-hour movement behaviours in (preschool) children;
- Various settings (e.g., childcare, school, home);
- Measurement of 24-hour movement behaviours in (preschool) children;
- 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 could include original articles, short communications or review articles (systematic review or meta-analyses). There are no restrictions regarding study design and methodology.
