It mainly accepts publications from such fields as sports sciences, sports education, sports medicine, history of medicine and ethics, nutrition for the athlete, athlete psychology, medical and biological sciences for sports, and “doping”. Moreover, it accepts studies from the sub-branches of these scientific fields which are evaluated and assessed positively by referees expert in their fields. Studies which are included in the pharmacology, but are on athletes and athlete health are also accepted and evaluated in our Journal. Moreover, studies which are conducted in the field of forensic sciences for sports and athletes are accepted and evaluated in our Journal. Our Journal accepts and publishes studies which are originally scientific and will serve and contribute to the science world as well as research, collection and translation for these studies. You can see general information about the branches of science that our journal accepts publications under the heading "DISCIPLINES".
