Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Physical activity and good nutrition are key factors contributing to good human mental and physical health. Epidemiological data provide increasing evidence that reduced physical activity and sedentary lifestyle increase both the risk of developing chronic diseases and the mortality associated with these diseases. Physical activity constitutes an integral part of numerous therapeutic interventions. However, physical effort, depending on its duration and intensity, is a known stress factor for the human body. Changes in internal homeostasis arise as a result of continuous biochemical and physiological processes. These processes occur at different intensities, depending on the type and intensity of the physical activity. Understanding these mechanisms makes it possible to individualize training loads, and to implement the rational periodization of physical activity.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications 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 single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
