The Editorial Committee of the Journal of Human Kinetics announces that the basic and fundamental version of our periodical is the electronic version available online.
Beginning with 2015, the Journal of Human Kinetics will charge a fee of 250 euro for publishing a paper.
The decision on the rise of the publishing fee which remained unchanged for the previous four years was taken by the Editorial Committee after taking into consideration increasing costs of running the Journal.
Moreover, we are glad to announce that the IF increased up to 0,698 in 2013.
