Kinesiology Review is the official, peer-reviewed publication of the National Academy of Kinesiology and the American Kinesiology Association. The mission of Kinesiology Review is to advance the field of Kinesiology by publishing evaluative, insightful, and integrative scholarly reviews of kinesiology research, both basic and applied. Kinesiology Review encourages the submission of theoretical expositions, critical reviews and analyses of significant issues and scientific methods, and position papers pertinent to kinesiology. Integrative research reviews that develop connections between areas of research are particularly valued. Both meta-analytic and narrative review formats are acceptable. Proposals for thematic issues are encouraged and should be submitted to the journal’s editor for consideration. Papers reporting empirical findings from a specific study are not appropriate for the journal.
Kinesiology Review is published quarterly (February, May, August, November) with one issue each year reserved for the National Academy of Kinesiology’s annual collection of invited conference papers, The Academy Papers, which includes scholarly reviews and commentaries on timely issues in kinesiology. Additionally, another issue is reserved for papers resulting from the American Kinesiology Association’s annual workshop.
