Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

According to the latest recommendations of the World Health Organization, regular physical activity is essential to combat sedentary lifestyles. Physical activity, proper nutrition and proper rest are habits that must be adhered to by the entire population. Special importance should be placed on creating these habits in the early stages of childhood. In addition, scientific evidence has found numerous benefits in terms of quality of life, self-perception and personal well-being. As professionals in the health sector, it is essential to create social transfer, adapt programs to promote physical activity and evaluate its impact on people's lives. Social policies must proceed accordingly and promote activities related to healthy habits, from the educational, economic and social spheres, since it is not a cost but an investment in society. In this Special Issue, interested authors are invited to contribute their research in the field of healthy habits and physical activity. Research that addresses aspects of physical activity, health and quality of life are suitable for this Special Issue.

This article empirically provides a global overview of physical literacy, which allows for the understanding of the structure of the epistemic community studying literacy for healthy living. Publications registered in the Web of Science are analyzed using bibliometrics (spatial, productive, and relational) based on data from 391 records, published between 2007 and April 2022, applying five bibliometric laws and using VOSviewer software for data and metadata processing and visualization. In terms of results, we observe an exponential increase in scientific production in the last decade, with a concentration of scientific discussion on physical literacy in seven journals; a production distributed in 46 countries situated on the five continents, but concentrated in Canada and the United States; co-authored research networks composed of 1256 researchers but with a production concentrated of around 2% of these, and an even smaller number of authors with high production and high impact. Finally, there are four thematic blocks that, although interacting, constitute three specific knowledge production communities that have been delineated over time in relation to health and quality of life, fitness and physical competence, education, and fundamental movement skills.
