PLAGIARISM, SELF-PLAGIARISMJournal subscribes to the principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). All authors must abide by the standards outlined in the journal’s ethical guidelines. In particular, please note the need to avoid duplicate submission, plagiarism and self-plagiarism. If you are unsure what is meant by plagiarism read the Wikipedia article. Self-Plagiarism is defined as a type of plagiarism in which the writer republishes a work in its entirety or reuses portions of a previously written text while authoring a new work. The key component of this malpractice is that the new paper makes no reference to the previous publication. Papers are checked for evidence of plagiarism. If such evidence is found the paper is rejected and no further submissions will be accepted. Also there are services such as WriteCheck, which, for a fee, will check your paper for evidence of plagiarism.
CATEGORIES OF ARTICLESThe Journal welcomes articles on different aspects of physical education, sports and health of students 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.
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 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.
- articles should be topical and original, they should outline tasks (issues), describe key results of the author's research and his\her conclusions;

This section provides detailed general style and formatting requirements for manuscripts.
page should carry:
Should be comprehensible to the general reader. Should contain the hypothesis. Authors should briefly introduce the problem, particularly emphasizing the level of knowledge about the problem at the beginning of the investigation.
Material and methods
The materials and methods section should be brief but sufficient to allow other investigators to repeat the research.
should concisely and reasonably summarize the findings. Restrict tables and figures to the number needed to explain the argument of the paper and assess its support. Do not duplicate data in graphs and tables. Give numbers of observation and report exclusions or losses to observation such as dropouts from a study. Report complications. The results should be presented in a logical sequence in the text, tables and illustrations related to the statements in the text by means of reference remarks. Do not repeat in the text all the data from the tables or graphs. Emphasize only important observations.
should include interpretation of study findings, and results considered in the context of results in other studies reported in the literature. Do not repeat in detail data or other material from the Background or the Results section. Include in the Discussion the implications of the findings and their limitations, including implications for future research. The discussion should confront the results of other investigations especially those quoted in the text.
should be linked with the goals of the study. State new hypotheses when warranted. Include recommendations when appropriate. Unqualified statements and conclusions not completely supported by the obtained data should be avoided.
present particularly important information the authors would like to point out.
List all contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship, such as technical assistants, writing assistants or head of department who provided only general support. Describe their role. Financial and other material support should be disclosed and acknowledged.
References (≥20). Style Vancouver
must be numbered consecutively. References selected for publication should be chosen for their importance, accessibility, and for the further reading opportunities they provide. References first cited in tables, figure legends must be numbered so that they will be in sequence with references cited in the text. References cited in Glossary must be numbered starting from the last citation number in the text.

Numbering. Tables should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and should be cited in the text by number, e.g., "see Table 1." Each table must be mentioned at least once in the text, and in proper numerical order. In the printed paper, the placement of tables will be determined by their first mention in the text.
created in the Microsoft Word 2007, 2010, or 2011 default equation editor pose problems because the MathML mapping of this editor is not 100% accurate. Please use MathType, to create equations.
will normally be reduced to one column width (8.4 cm) and should be prepared accordingly. If a particular figure should not be reduced, a note to that effect should be included with the figure. Figures should be numbered consecutively in the order of appearance and citation in the text. Be sure to cite every figure. Handwritten lettering and low-quality computer graphics are not acceptable. Electronic files should be sized as they will appear in the journal and should be accompanied by high-quality laser prints. Files should have a resolution of 600 dpi.
Graphs or charts
