ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE EDITORS
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).
If you have any questions about the International Journal of Exercise Science, please email us at .

The International Journal of Exercise Science publishes proceedings for a number of regional, national, and international conferences and meetings.
To simplify referencing as well as site navigation, we have assigned each conference or related organization its own “volume," and thus each year’s proceedings for that conference is an “issue." For example, The Texas Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine is Volume 2, and then each of its conferences has its own issue number.
If you are affiliated with an organization that holds research conferences within Exercise Science or a related field, and you are interested in having the International Journal of Exercise Science publish your proceedings, then please contact us at this email address: email@example.com.
While our most recently updated volume is listed in its entirety below, here you can find additional links to recently published proceedings from our other chapters and organizations:
(2014) Texas Regional Chapter Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine
(2013) Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter Proceedings - American College of Sports Medicine
(2013) International Society of Exercise and Immunology Symposia Proceedings
Please note that all publications on the International Journal of Exercise Science Conference Proceedings site are abstracts, not full manuscripts. To see if a full research manuscript has been published from one of the abstracts on this site, we suggest that you contact the lead or corresponding author.
The International Journal of Faith Community Nursing (IJFCN) is the official journal of Faith Community Nurses International (FCNI). The primary aim of IJFCN is to support the practice of faith community nurses worldwide through publication of current research and best practices.
At this time we are accepting submissions for the upcoming Fall/Winter issue. If you have questions regarding submissions, please contact one of the editors. We look forward to working with authors and welcome your questions.

Similarly, our call for papers extends beyond critical essays and reviews and encompasses relevant memoirs and reminisces, primary and archival materials, work dealing with writers important to Warren or about whom he himself wrote, bibliographic materials, and criticism and commentary in the spirit of Robert Penn Warren. We also strongly encourage pedagogical reflections that examine the way that Warren’s creative work and critical legacy continue to hold relevance in the classroom.

Sierpinski’s Square (Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky)About The Journal
Gatton Academy students excel in far more than STEM fields. Sierpinski’s Square was founded in the spring semester of 2015 by Gatton Academy students Courtney George (’15) and Hayden Justice (’16) to provide a forum for profound written analyses within the humanities. Sierpinski’s Square is a journal that parallels the town square -- a place where current Gatton Academy students can share ideas developed in their humanities classes.
Original poetry, short stories, literary analyses, audio items, visual art, and/or quirky application essays are accepted for consideration. A call for submissions goes out each spring semester to currently-enrolled Gatton Academy students.
The next call for submissions will go out to current Gatton Academy students in the Spring semester 2017.
