Sports Medicine and Health Science

The purpose of the journal Sports Medicine and Health Science (SMHS) is to provide a scientific merit-based and high-quality publication platform for all relevant biomedical studies worldwide with the primary focus on sports medicine, physical activity, and exercise-related health sciences. The primary disciplines covered by this Journal SMHS include, but not limited to: Clinical Sports Medicine, Orthopedics, Preventive Medicine, Rehabilitation Medicine, Physical Therapy; Basic and Translational Sports Sciences including Exercise Physiology, Exercise Biochemistry, Exercise Molecular Biology and Exercise Immunology; Biomechanics; Motor Control and Exercise Neuroscience; Exercise Epidemiology, Gerontology, and Nutrition; and Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Other emphasized topics of interests for this Journal (SMHS) are

  • Prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports injuries in muscles, ligaments, joints, and bones, especially those occurred in elite, professional, or Olympic athletes as well as amateur participants in sports;
  • Prevention and treatment of chronic disease caused by lack of physical activity or improper practice of exercise. SMHS welcomes contributions on studies employing exercise intervention on metabolic, cardiopulmonary and neuromuscular disorders as well as mental health. Health issues among elderly population would receive special editorial attention.
  • Basic biological research emphasizing cellular mechanisms of exercise effect and consequence of lack of physical activity in the fields of molecular biology, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, neuroscience, and nutritional science.
  • Epidemiology and population research on the effect of physical activity and exercise on health-threatening epidemics due to lack of physical activity on chronic diseases, such as but not limited to obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and Alzheimer disease.
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), such as acupuncture and traditional sports (such as Tai-Chi and Qigong) in prevention and treatment of sports injury and other chronic diseases in major vital organs, such as obesity, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, stroke and heart attack.
