The primary aim of the International Journal of Exercise Science (IJES) 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 IJES, please email us at .

To maintain a happy editorial board and reviewer pool, the International Journal of Exercise Science will reduce our normal staffing during June and July. Any manuscripts submitted during these months may not begin the pre-review process until August. Additionally, manuscripts under review during these months may take longer than our normal time course to complete. It is suggested to submit well in advance of these months in order to avoid any delays.
