Topics in Exercise Science and Kinesiology dedicated to relaying information to the research practitioner in an open access format. The journal focuses on two main practical ares: 1) the "Process of Science" (aspects surrounding scientific discovery and practice, which could include findings from investigations, novel scientific applications, or experience gained through completing research), and 2) "Implementation Strategies" (processes by which aspects can be applied to the performance or practice of exercise, including pre-exercise routines, novel training applications, or methods for improving performance). If you have questions about where your work fits, please contact the editors.

See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
