Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research has pointed out that several factors tend to interfere in the performance, recovery, and health of athletes, from childhood to old age, as well as in para-sport. The relationships between stress, maturation, training load, and recovery tend to impact the performance and health of this population. In this context, environmental interventions tend to improve performance and physiological adaptations. However, this stimulus–performance–adaptations relationship tends to vary in different contexts and environments.

Considering that research in sports sciences is still scarce in this topic, we would like to open a window of opportunity to increase the participation of researchers focused on these populations, aiming to widen our knowledge and implications for practice. Therefore, we are looking for original articles and systematic reviews and meta-analyses covering the following topics (but not exclusively): (i) training interventions in exercise, sports, and Paralympic sports, with a special focus on the variability of responses and dose–response relationships; (ii) monitoring the training load and interactions with well-being, readiness, and risk of injury in exercise, sports, and Paralympic sports; (iii) performance analysis and implications for sports training; (iv) recovery processes and interactions with other scientific areas such as sports nutrition or sports psychology and Paralympic sports; (v) rehabilitation, injury prevention, and return to play; (vi) evaluation and treatment of sports injuries; and (vii) nutritional aspects related to physical activity and health.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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 2300 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.
