Journal of ICHPER·SD

The Publication of the Journal of ICHPER-SD has been suspended indefinitely due to the lack of financial sponsorship for publication.

The Journal of ICHPER·SD, established as the official publication of ICHPER·SD in October, 1988, is provided quarterly (January, April, July, and October) to all ICHPER·SD members, associated and selected organizations in areas of health, physical education, recreation, sport and the Olympic Movement, and dance in over 202 countries and self governing territories worldwide.

The Journal has grown from 32 pages and two-color covers to 64 pages and four-color covers. Abstracts of all major articles are now translated from English into four or five additional languages – Arabic, French, German, Spanish, and Turkish. Each issue consists of from eight to twelve academic and scientific articles with either a practical application or research emphasis. The articles come from all 7 ICHPER·SD geographic regions (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America and the Caribbean, and Oceania).

In addition, regular features include important professional messages from the ICHPER·SD President, a Regional Vice President and the Editor of the Journal. Each issue also contains a calendar of ICHPER·SD World and Regional Congresses, ICHPER·SD Forum and Commissions’ Conferences and Seminars, selected international conferences, and webworks especially related to topics in the current issue.

A double blind review process is rigorously followed; reviewers are located in each of the ICHPER·SD geographic regions.
