Kinesiology Review is a quarterly online journal that stands alone in its focus on scholarly review articles from any and all of the kinesiology subdisciplines. It also publishes theoretical papers, critical analyses of significant issues, position papers, and commentary.
Kinesiology Review (KR) provides a forum for discussion and analysis of kinesiology research and its applications. Although many journals publish reviews on select topics, KR stands alone in its focus on scholarly reviews from all subdisciplines of kinesiology. This rigorously peer-reviewed online quarterly journal will serve the interests of those in all areas of study related to health and physical activity, including movement and exercise science, sport and exercise psychology, sports medicine, sport history, sociology of sport and physical activity, physical education pedagogy, athletic training, sport management, and physical and occupational therapy.
The insightful review articles in KR address important issues and emerging research in all areas of the sport, movement, and exercise sciences. KR also publishes theoretical papers, critical analyses of significant issues and scientific methods, and position papers pertinent to kinesiology. One issue each year will contain the annual papers of the National Academy of Kinesiology, which provides commentaries on timely issues in the field. Recent articles have touched on recovering from spinal cord injuries, physical activity's scientific role in successful aging, diversity in kinesiology, and the history of organized youth sport in the United States. Future articles will continue to explore new research in kinesiology and other topics of importance to the field.
KR's broad coverage makes it a perfect source of information for faculty, researchers, and professionals who want to stay up to date on emerging research across the disciplines, as well as students who are starting their exploration of this fascinating field of study.
KR's online format allows for faster dissemination of information than the print version allows. Subscribers can receive the table of contents of each issue by e-mail when a new issue has been published.

She has coedited 7 texts in motor development and authored or coauthored 25 book chapters and 68 refereed journal publications. Her articles have appeared in such journals as Journal of Motor Behavior, Child Development, Developmental Psychology, Journal of Neurophysiology, Infant Behavior & Development, Journal of Gerontology, Motor Control, Neuroscience Letters, Human Movement Science, Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly, Research in Developmental Disabilities, and Quest. She has also presented over 300 scientific papers at national and international conferences and universities.
Dr. Clark is an active member of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD). She has served as secretary and president of the Research Consortium of AAHPERD and chair of the Motor Development Academy of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE). She has been honored by the Eastern District as their Outstanding Teacher in the College Division (1988) and as their Scholar Lecturer (1995) and by the Research Consortium as the McCloy Lecturer (1995). In 2001, Dr. Clark chaired the NASPE Task Force on Guidelines for Infant and Preschool Physical Activity (Active Start). In 2007, she was honored as the Alliance Scholar of AAHPERD.
A past president of the North American Society for the Psychology of Sport and Physical Activity, Dr. Clark has been an active member of several other professional organizations dedicated to the study of motor development, including the International Society for Research into Developmental Coordination Disorder and the International Society on Infant Studies.
In 1993, Dr. Clark was elected fellow of the American Academy of Kinesiology and Physical Education (recently renamed the National Academy of Kinesiology), a society limited to 150 active scholars in the field of kinesiology. In 2006, she was elected president of the academy. Her research focuses on the developing relationship between perception and action in infants and young children. She also studies children with motor coordination problems. The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health have funded her research for the last decade.
She has been honored with the Alumni Achievement Award by the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin and with the Hall of Heritage Award from the Brockport Alumni Association.
