Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Human movement is vital to maintaining good levels of global health. In a period marked by social distancing and new behaviors, promoting new debates about physical health and sports participation is fundamental and deserves special attention in terms of public health. Therefore, this edition invites the submission of articles involving aspects related to: (i) physical health, which indirectly or directly impacts people's lives, whether in terms of quality of life, behavioral changes, the process of human growth and development, or the biological and mental health aspects of individuals; and (ii) sports medicine, with a focus on promoting physical and sports exercise, involving recreational and performance practice, barriers to sports practice, treatment, and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise, as well as biological and environmental aspects involved with sports medicine.
