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

Manuscripts should be submitted online by submit system. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Original articles, case reports or comprehensive reviews are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. JOMH is an international peer-reviewed open access journal published by MRE Press. As of January 2021, JOMH will change to a bimonthly journal. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript.The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is $1200. We normally offer a discount greater than 30% to all contributors invited by the Editor-in-Chief, Guest Editor (GE) and Editorial board member. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
