There is a growing interest in research into the determinants of health-related quality of life. Studies highlighting the importance of regular physical activity as a healthy practice and numerous investigations have shown that the practice of physical activity contributes positively to psychosocial wellbeing in the population. Physical education within the school context is presented as a suitable environment to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, and it is agreed that physical activity carried out at an early age helps to establish healthy living habits that can last a lifetime.
In this Special Issue we are inviting researchers from different academic disciplines (physical education, psychology, sociology, medicine, etc.) to address the study of physical activity as a central variable in achieving a healthier population from a multiple or bio-psychosocial point of view. We are looking for studies that analyze the subject within the school context through physical education lessons, in free time outside school, or indeed studies with adult and elderly populations. The proposal is open to cross-sectional, longitudinal, and intervention studies that apply quantitative, qualitative or mixed methodologies. Systematic reviews, meta-analyses and proposals for new measuring instruments are also welcomed.
