Sedentary behaviour has 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 behaviour is prevalent in all age groups going 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 behaviour is such a recent research topic, several aspects can still be thoroughly investigated. Therefore, manuscripts on following topics (though not limited to them) are welcome to be submitted:
- Factors influencing sedentary behaviour
- Interventions targeting sedentary behaviour
- Various settings (e.g., childcare, school, home, office, retirement home, transport, etc.)
- Measurement of sedentary behaviour
- 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 Topical Collection. Submissions could include original articles, short communications or review articles (systematic review or meta-analyses). There are no restrictions regarding study design and methodology.
