Special Issue in Life: Human Thermophysiology
The purpose of this Special Issue is to show relevant works in sports science from the biomechanical and physiological perspective. Sports biomechanics can be defined as the science which explains human movements and how forces influence this movement. However, as we know, this definition is often more extended, for example in studying the interaction between the athlete, his or her equipment, and environment. Exercise physiology involves the functions and activities of organs, tissues, cells, chemical phenomena, etc. Both areas usually have the same objective in experimental studies: to improve performance and reduce injury risk. Therefore, although sometimes experimental studies focus their analyses in a specific methodology of one of these perspectives, they more often combine both sciences because their connection allows a better understanding of the research problem. We invite authors to submit papers with original results from research related to exercise biomechanics and physiology. Review manuscript and paper with contributions about methodologies and advances in the technology are also invited.

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. Life is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
