Journal of Human Kinetics

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.

The Journal of Human Kinetics has a new 2021 Impact Factor of 2.923

The Journal of Human Kinetics has been on the market for almost a quarter-century. During that time, it has evolved from a local periodical printed biannually to a highly respected international journal with a significant impact on sports sciences. The impact factor has increased steadily, and JHK has moved up to Q2 within the JCR ranking. This has been possible through the dedication and support of all the authors and reviewers. Without your continuous effort, our success would not be possible. Thus your success is our success. We will prepare several innovations and propose new specific topics and special issues. Therefore we kindly ask former and new authors to put their trust in JHK and choose our journal to disseminate your latest research. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the editorial team for doing an excellent job.
