- The purpose is to introduce Topics in Exercise and Science Kinesiology (TESK) as an outlet for practical information.
- We searched available journals in the field to determine practitioner-focused options, we also determined the percentage of presented abstracts at a popular meeting compared to the number of published papers in a leading peer-reviewed scientific journal.
- Point of application 1: Only 2% of publication options in kinesiology or exercise science have a practitioner focus.
- Point of application 2: A relatively small number of peer-reviewed conference abstracts (less than 10%) are deemed publication-worthy following journal peer-review.
- Point of application 3: To be more inclusive, we announce the International Community of Scholars in Kinesiology (ICSK); and to provide students with important information on professional development and trending research, we will host a virtual Student Research Week each year.
