Physical activity has been shown to contribute to the improvement and maintenance of human health. However, further research is needed to improve the level of evidence available and to make recommendations based on scientific evidence.
According to the WHO, one of the seven principles of “The Draft Global Action Plan on Physical Activity 2018–2030 in Brief” (https://www.who.int/ncds/governance/who-discussion-paper-gappa-9april2018.pdf?ua=1) is evidence-based practice. For this it is essential to have studies of high methodological quality that are published in scientific journals. This Special Issue on physical activity and health will contribute to this purpose.
This Special Issue aims to present research findings from health, sport sciences, and other professionals in relation to physical activity and health.
This Special Issue welcomes manuscripts on the relationship between physical activity, exercise or sport and health, along with the underlying mechanisms. The following paper formats are accepted: study protocols, longitudinal studies, cross-sectional studies, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses.
Topics of interest include:
- Physical activity, exercise or sport and health;
- Active tourism or active recreation and health;
- Wilderness therapy and health;
- Outdoor exercise and health;
- Blue gym or green gym and health
- Forest bathing or shinrin-yoku and health.
