CATEGORIES OF ARTICLESThe Journal encourages articles on different aspects of physical education, sports and health of students (higher education institutions) which cover scientific researches in the related fields, such as biomechanics, kinesiology, medicine, psychology, sociology, technologies of sports equipment, research in training, selection, physical efficiency, as well as health preservation and other interdisciplinary perspectives.
Physical Education in these contexts refers to the interacting and interdependent components of knowledge and curriculum, students and learning, and teachers/coaches, teaching/coaching and teacher/coach education. The journal particularly welcomes papers that consider the interactions of each of these components and their practice in specific contexts.
The journal publishes articles only with the participation of adult young people - students of higher educational institutions (according to the COPE recommendations, such students do not require parental consent to participate in the experiment). The journal does not publish articles involving children that require parental consent to participate in the experiment.
Journal recommends articles with experimental design: In an experimental design, the researcher actively tries to change the situation, circumstances, or experience of participants (manipulation), which may lead to a change in behavior or outcomes for the participants of the study.
The journal considers the usage of q&a method as one of the stages of pedagogical experiment. In such pedagogical experiment the scientists actively influence on participants of a research to verify hypothesis. The journal does not review the articles based only on the q&a method.
The journal publishes original empirical and theoretical articles, review articles, and preliminary research reports contributing to physical education of students knowledge.
Empirical papers should be written concisely using the scientific format (introduction, method [including participants, instruments and procedure), results, discussion, and references].
Theoretical papers should draw on existing research literature and should critically analyse selected models and/or theories, only reporting empirical results if they are directly related to theory.
A review article should critically evaluate material that has already been published.
The aim of a review article is to analyse, evaluate, and synthesise current knowledge, not simply reproduce what is already known.
Review articles should consist of the following sections: problem definition, summary of previous research, explanation of subject matter, contradictions, problems and suggestions for further research.
Preliminary research reports should present the findings of empirical research that is still in progress, and should be written using the same format as the Empirical Papers described at the beginning of this section; however, these reports should be shorter in length than a standard paper.
Manuscripts- articles should be topical and original, they should outline tasks (issues), describe key results of the author's research and his\her conclusions;
- articles must satisfy the requirements of making up.
By submitting a manuscript for publication the author (s):
- agrees to license it under the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY 4.0);
- Conflict of interest declaration and author agreement form
- agrees with the principles of ethics of scientific publications upon recommendations of International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, Committee of Publication Ethics.
Submission of a manuscript implies that it has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, and that if accepted it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language.
General Guidelines for Manuscript Preparation. Article Style. Citing in the Text.This section provides detailed general style and formatting requirements for manuscripts.
Manuscripts should be prepared following the general style guidelines set out in the Publication:
- Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals.
- EASE (European Association of Science Editors) Guidelines for Authors and Translators of Scientific Articles to be Published in English.
Accurate and clear expression of your thoughts and research information should be the primary goal of scientific writing. Remember that accuracy and clarity are even more important when trying to get complicated ideas across. Contain your literature review, ideas, and discussions to your topic, theme, model, review, commentary, or case. Avoid vague terminology and too much prose. Use short rather than long sentences. A sentence made of more than 40 words should probably be rewritten as two sentences. Avoid Adjectives and Adverbs. If jargon has to be utilized keep it to a minimum and explain the terms you do use clearly. Write with a measure of formality, using scientific language and avoiding conjunctions, slang, and discipline or regionally specific nomenclature or terms (e.g. exercise nicknames). Journal prefer authors to write in the active voice ("we performed the experiment...") as experience has shown that readers find concepts and results to be conveyed more clearly if written directly. We have also found that use of several adjectives to qualify one noun in highly technical language can be confusing to readers. Over the whole document, make the average sentence length 15-20 words. The editors reserve the right to make any final adjustments to the manuscript to ensure consistency within the journal.
Manuscripts should meet the general requirements.
Text should be one spaced, in Times New Roman, 10-point typeface. Margins: 2 cm at top, bottom, right, and left. Manuscript size: From 13000 characters.
Citing in the Text - Vancouver Style
In the Vancouver Style, a number is assigned to each reference as it is used. Even if the author is named in your text, a number must still be used. The original number assigned to the reference is used each time that reference is cited in the text. The first reference you cite will be numbered  in the text, and the second reference you cite will be numbered , and so on. If you cite reference number  again later in the text, you will cite it using the number .
Citing more than one reference at a time
• When citing more than one source at a time, the preferred method is to list each reference number separately with a comma between each reference:
[1, 2] (maximum 2 references; exception - 3)
Citing a reference multiple times
• If referring to a different page number, or other reference, within the source, use the following forms:
[3, pp. 5-10], [3, Ch. 2, pp. 6-21], [3, Fig. 1], [3, Sec. 4.5]
Title pageshould carry:
• the article title (is the most important summary of a scientific article, should also include information on the scope of investigation);
• full names (first name, middle-name initials), and last names of all authors;
• authors' affiliations; if authors belong to several different institutions, superscript digits should be used to relate the authors' names to respective institutions;
• information on financial support;
• full address, phone number, e-mail of the corresponding author should be given.
Authors are required to include information of responsibility in the manuscript that specifies the contribution of every author. Authorship should be considered if one has made substantial contributions to the conception, acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data, drafted or revised the work, approved the final manuscript, and willingness to take responsibility (ICMJE criteria).
People helping only in data collection, performing statistics, technical contributions, and data entry, or those who have obtained grants or head of the department should be all acknowledged but cannot be considered as authors unless they fulfill the ICMJE criteria.
We suggest the following kind of format (please use initials to refer to each author’s contribution):
A – Study design;
B – Data collection;
C – Statistical analysis;
D – Manuscript Preparation;
E – Funds Collection.
