The Journal of Human Kinetics

 is an open-access interdisciplinary periodical offering the latest research in the science of human movement studies. This comprehensive professional journal follows the principles of a double-blind peer review process and features articles and research notes encompassing such topic areas as Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology and Sports Medicine, Sports and Physical Activity, as well as Psychological and Sociological Aspects of Sport and Exercise, yet especially considering elite and competitive aspects of the sport. The journal publishes research papers, reviews, case studies, short communications, letters to editors, and editorials. Most importantly, manuscripts submitted to the journal must contain novel data on theoretical or experimental research or on practical applications in the field of sports sciences. The regular issues of the Journal of Human Kinetics are published in January, April, July, and October, yet we accept proposals for special issues or specific topics. We encourage scientists from around the world to submit their papers to our Journal.

Dear Authors,

We would like to inform you that after several years of cooperation, the Academy of Physical Education in Katowice has decided to change the publisher of the Journal of Human Kinetics.
The Journal has been published for close to a quarter of a century, and we are constantly striving to improve our quality and to serve the scientific community in the best possible way we can. We kindly ask new authors to log into the new Editorial System that is now available on our website. We apologize for any inconveniencies, but we honestly feel that these changes will improve the quality of processing the manuscripts and soon we will receive an even higher Impact Factor.
Additionally, we have expanded the scope of the journal, which now covers topics not only related to competitive sports, but also to physical activity of different populations.
We have also added several renowned international scientists to our editorial board to improve the reviewing procedures. Considering the above, we encourage new, and especially previous authors to submit manuscripts to the JHK

Editor in chief of JHK
