The European Journal of Sport Science (EJSS) is the official journal of the European College of Sport Science. The editorial policy of the Journal pursues the multi-disciplinary aims of the College: to promote the highest standards of scientific study and scholarship in respect of the following fields:
- Applied Sport Sciences
- Biomechanics and Motor Control
- Physiology and Nutrition
- Social Sciences and Humanities
- Sports and Exercise Medicine and Health.
The Journal facilitates and enhances communication across all sub-disciplines of the sport sciences. The College is not exclusively committed to any particular schools of thought or methods of research.
For the purposes of the EJSS, ’sport’ is defined inclusively to refer to all forms of human movement that aim to maintain or improve physical and mental well-being, create or improve social relationships, or obtain results in competition at all levels. Defined thus, the Journal publishes articles from across the disciplinary spectrum concerning inter alia the motivation, attitudes, values, responses, adaptations, performance and health-related aspects of persons engaged in sport.
The Journal publishes original research as well as review articles of topics of contemporary importance or interest from across the world.
EJSS only publishes high caliber research, which is reflected in our impact factor and indexing:
