About the Journal

The Journal of Health, Sports, and Kinesiology (JOHSK; ISSN 2767-5874 [print] and ISSN 2692-9864 [online]) publishes research articles in the fields of Health, Sports, and Kinesiology. JOHSK is a high-quality open-access and double-blind peer-reviewed research journal that is published by the International Organization for Health, Sports, and Kinesiology (IOHSK). JOHSK publishes four times a year, January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December. The JOHSK provides a platform for researchers, academicians, professionals, practitioners, and students to impart and share knowledge in the form of high-quality empirical and theoretical research papers, case studies, literature reviews, and book reviews. JOHSK welcomes and acknowledges high-quality theoretical and empirical original research papers, case studies, review papers, literature reviews, book reviews, conceptual framework, analytical and simulation models, technical notes from researchers, academicians, professionals, practitioners, and students from all over the world.

Work must be of a quality and context that would be of interest to an international readership. Manuscripts for special issues and individual papers can be on any contemporary health, sports, and kinesiology topics of international interest. Research findings of high-quality research involving any discipline and methodology related to Health, Sports, and Kinesiology will be welcome. However, the journal's aim and scope are to ensure it publishes high-quality research that could potentially inform research.

The research findings do not have to be comparative (in the sense of comparing aspects of Health, Sports, and Kinesiology in different countries or cultures); a manuscript may report research carried out in just one regional location or sociocultural setting. Work can be drawn from any context or research paradigm. However, the Journal tends to publish empirical research studies that have clear significance to an international readership. Therefore, work must have the following features:

                •  A strong theoretical framework

                •  Clear understanding of how literature critically relates to the topic researched

                •  Strong design and data analysis

                •  Critical analysis and recommendations for further research, policy, and practice in an international context

                •  It must follow the 'Instructions for Authors' advice provided

As well as papers, which report the findings of empirical research, papers, which provide critical literature reviews of research on specific environmental information and physical activity topics of international interest, will also be welcome.
