Special Issue Information
Strength and conditioning practitioners use exercise prescription to improve the performance of competitive athletes and athletic teams. This is achieved through the combination of strength training, aerobic conditioning, plyometrics, and other methods. In experimental and theoretical sports biomechanics, the laws of mechanics are applied to gain a greater understanding of athletic performance through biomechanical measurement and modelling. We have the pleasure to open the call for papers for this Special Issue titled “Strength and Conditioning and Biomechanics for Sports”.
The aim of this Special Issue is to publish a series of studies that are related to strength and conditioning and/or sports biomechanics. We encourage the submission of research investigating the chronic and acute effect of strength (e.g., traditional and novel forms of resistance training) and conditioning (e.g., aerobic and anaerobic conditioning) protocols as well as investigating biomechanical parameters (e.g., kinetics and kinematics) in sporting movements. Biomechanical investigations relating to athlete screening, training monitoring or prescription, or comparisons of alternative exercises (i.e., the biomechanics of strength and conditioning) are especially welcomed. Review papers of any of the above or related topics are also welcomed.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Sports 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.
