Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Kinesio Tex Taping is a kinesthetic method based on an elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive developed by Japanese chiropractor Dr. Kenso Kase in the 1970s, which first gained widespread attention at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Kinesiotaping has become a popular intervention strategy used both in sports setting to improve athletes’ performance and in clinical rehabilitation practice. However, even if the use of kinesiotape is growing in popularity, its direct benefits remain controversial due to inconsistent results and/or methodological limitations.

Further research is demanded to grant a deeper understanding of advantages and limits in using this intervention modality in special populations, such as sport players and subjects with physical and neurological disorders.

This Special Issue is devoted to collecting original and high-quality investigations and/or reviews describing how a kinesiotaping approach can influence sports performance, motor behavior, and functional movement in subjects with physical and motor diseases.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Functional Morphology and Kinesiology is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
