Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The continuous advancement of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in recent decades has allowed the integration of these, in one way or another, in all areas of knowledge. The sports sciences have not been foreign to this expansion in the use of ICT technology and it is now possible to find many examples of the use of ICT in sport, for the improvement of sports performance, injury prevention or as support to arbitration.

Among the different ICT systems that we find in the field of sports sciences we can make a classification based on the location of the device. On the one hand, there are technologies external to the athlete and on the other hand there are those technologies that the athlete has incorporated during sports, technologies known by the community as wearable. Many of the technologies external to the athlete are based on systems of computer vision, recognition and image processing. Similarly, we found some that are not based on computer vision, such as the force platforms used to evaluate the physical condition of the athlete or systems used to measure the state of the athlete. Moreover, the technological advancement of the microelectronics industry has allowed the development of electronic components and sensors with a high degree of miniaturization, which has allowed the appearance of wearable electronic devices (wearables) capable of measuring and transmitting information wirelessly with very small dimensions. Sport has not been left out of this technological revolution and so we can find in the market from devices widely used by the general population, such as activity bracelets.

This Special Issue aims to publish new and novel research work focusing on the latest advances in ICT technologies for sport science. Major sub-topics include sensors and measurement systems to evaluate physical qualities, the analysis of technical gestures and the improvement of sports performance. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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. 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. Sensors 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 2600 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.
