Focus and Scope
Journal of Applied Sports Science (JASS) publishes research in the art and science of sports and human movement that contributes significantly to the knowledge base of the field. The journal publishes articles in the area of biomechanics, exercise physiology, exercise psychology, training science, sport nutrition, sport management and recreation, etcÂ The goals of JASS are to provide a scholarly outlet for knowledge that: (a) contributes to the study of sports science and human movement; (b) impacts theory and practice regarding sports science and human movement; (c) stimulates research about sports and human movement; and (d) provides theoretical reviews and tutorials related to the study of sports science and human movement.Â
Peer Review Process
The practice of peer review is to ensure that only good science is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out by all reputable scientific journals. Our referees play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of theÂ Journal of Choice ModellingÂ and all manuscripts are peer reviewed following the procedure outlined below.
Initial manuscript evaluationÂ The Editors first evaluate all manuscripts. It is rare, but it is possible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Manuscripts rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal.Â Those that meet the minimum criteria are normally passed on to at least 2 experts for review.
Type of Peer ReviewÂ The Journal of Choice ModellingÂ employs single blind reviewing, where the referee remains anonymous throughout the process.
How the referee is selectedÂ Whenever possible, referees are matched to the paper according to their expertise and our database is constantly being updated.
Referee reportsÂ Referees are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:Â - Is original â€“ Is methodologically sound - Follows appropriate ethical guidelinesÂ - Has results which are clearly presented and support the conclusionsÂ - Correctly references previous relevant work Language correction is not part of the peer review process, but referees may, if so wish, suggest corrections to the manuscript.
How long does the review process take?Â The time required for the review process is dependent on the response of the referees. Should the refereesâ€™ reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. In rare cases for which it is extremely difficult to find a second referee to review the manuscript, or when the one refereeâ€™s report has thoroughly convinced the Editors, decisions at this stage to accept, reject or ask the author for a revision are made on the basis of only one refereeâ€™s report. The Editorsâ€™ decision will be sent to the author with recommendations made by the referees, which usually includes verbatim comments by the referees. Revised manuscripts might be returned to the initial referees who may then request another revision of a manuscript.
Final reportÂ A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the referees, and may include verbatim comments by the referees.
Editors Decision is finalÂ Referees advise the editors, who are responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article.
Becoming a referee for the Journal of Choice ModellingÂ If you are not currently a referee for theÂ Journal of Choice ModellingÂ but would like to be considered as a referee, please contact the editors. The benefits of refereeing for theÂ Journal of Choice ModellingÂ include the opportunity to read, see and evaluate the latest work in your research area at an early stage, and to contribute to the overall integrity of scientific research and its published documentation. You may also be able to cite your work for theÂ Journal of Choice ModellingÂ as part of your professional development requirements for various Professional Societies and Organisations.
