There are two major changes coming up in 2017 with the International Journal of Exercise Science. First, we are going from publishing quarterly to publishing bi-monthly. That will result in six issues per year rather than four. Also, we are going to start publishing papers as they are accepted rather than waiting to publish an issue "all at once." This will be great for our authors as their research will be in print sooner.

These are exciting changes, and they are due to the outstanding support of this journal from students and professionals worldwide. The Editors greatly appreciate your continued support of the International Journal of Exercise Science.

The primary aim of the International Journal of Exercise Science is to engage undergraduate and graduate students in scholarly activity as authors and reviewers as they develop into professionals. In accordance with this aim, on manuscript submissions it is mandatory that at least one author be a student that has played a prominent role in the overall study (see About IJES).
