We are organizing a Special Issue on “Pediatric Exercise and Health Outcomes” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, which is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. More detailed information can be found in https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
Physical activity level is a relevant determinant of the health status of children and adolescents. Therefore, it is important to understand how it’s different manifestations (e.g., physical education classes, sports participation, physical exercise, and sedentary behavior) can contribute to health during childhood and adolescence. The submission of prospective studies (e.g., cohort and randomized clinical trials) investigating the impact of physical activity manifestations on different health outcomes (e.g., bone health, body fatness, and cardiovascular and metabolic aspects) is encouraged, but well-designed cross-sectional studies are also welcome. All studies should involve participants up until the age of 19 years-old, in order to be characterized into pediatric groups.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the pediatric exercise sciences. The listed keywords suggest a few of the many possibilities.
