Special Issue Information

Sports Biomechanics is an interdisciplinary research subject that allows a detailed analysis of the mechanics of human movement to further understand musculoskeletal and physiological issues in sports. This area comprises subjects related to the effects of internal and external training loads and the interaction between environment and human movement, aiming to improve sports performance and minimize the risk of injury. Deeper knowledge about the reasons how and why the body responds to everyday requirements, daily tasks and/or physical exercise and/or sports performance, would help to be more successful in exercise movements and thus, attaining individual goals efficiently. The laws of mechanics allow a greater understanding of athletic performance through biomechanical measurement and modelling. Upon that, analytical procedures, experimental analysis, and simulations are of high importance to improve sportsmen health and performance. Furthermore, biomechanics topics also focused on research with different equipment, instruments, gears and objects in different sports or specific exercises.


In line with the objectives of the journal, this issue will focus to explore several issues of sports biomechanics for promoting men’s health and improved performance. In this special issue, we welcome contributions that describe, analyse, and/or discuss different areas of interest, such as physical activity, rehabilitation, fitness and competitive sport, based on the biomechanical perspective. Your contribution is welcome in form of an original article, case report, commentary, and review. This special issue allows an opportunity to address the following types of topics: kinetics and kinematics of human movements; musculoskeletal system; biomechanical examination methods; biomechanical modelling; prevention and rehabilitation; sports performance; exercise and health.

Manuscript Submission Information

Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by experts in the field. Rapid peer review and prompt editorial decisions will ensure that quality manuscripts are published on time. The manuscript has not already been published or submitted elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). If similar work has been published or submitted elsewhere, you must provide a copy of the submitted manuscript. You may not submit your manuscript elsewhere while it is under consideration at the Journal of Men's Health. All manuscripts undergo thorough double-blind peer-review. To check the suitability of the special issue for publishing your manuscript, please read the journal's aims and scope and read or download the guide for authors. You may also send a brief abstract of your work (about 100 words) to the Editorial Office at editor@jomh.org. A guide for authors and other relevant information for manuscript submission is available on the Instructions for Authors page.

Academic Writing and English Language Editing Services

Authors who feel that their manuscript may benefit from additional academic writing or language editing support before submission are strongly encouraged to use academic editing services.

Article Processing Charges (APC)

All manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Men's Health are assessed according to the journal standard editorial criteria. If accepted for publication, an Article Processing Charge of 900 USD applies.

The journal typically offers a 30% discount to submissions with good quality invited by the Editor-in-Chief, Guest Editor (GE) and Editorial Board Member.

Lower-income countries ( World Bank classification ) may apply a further discount or waiver (please contact editor@jomh.org when submit).
