Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2016).
Interests: paediatric exercise physiology; fatigue; talent development; exercise and chronic disease
Most people accept that “exercise is good for children” but, considering the number of children worldwide exercising, we know comparatively little, compared to adults, about how specific mechanisms influence health and exercise sports performance. There are considerable obstacles that have slowed the development of pediatric research not least in relation to ethical and methodological considerations. Therefore, advances in the science and clinical application of pediatric exercise physiology have not reached their potential.
Pediatric exercise physiology has application to the role of exercise in the treatment of pediatric chronic diseases, the utilization of physical activity in preventing illness and enhancing well-being and can enhance our understanding of how sports can played safer and more enjoyable for our youth athletes. This special edition within Sports entitled “Pediatric Exercise Physiology” will accept publications of research by various methodologies, including literature reviews, experimental research, and case studies, as applied to youth in a sports, health, or clinical context. Manuscripts which highlight new technologies or methodologies not commonly utilized in pediatric research are particularly welcome.
