The Annals of Applied Sport Science (Ann. Appl. Sport Sci.), an "Open Access" journal, follows a rigorous peer-review process for the submission of all articles. Ann. Appl. Sport Sci. publishes not only original articles and review articles but also editorials and short communications in the sports sciences. The Journal is published quarterly in electronic editions.


The journal is Open Access and has not any sponsor; so, authors are asked to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC) in order for their article to be published open access under a Creative Commons license.
Authors’ ability to pay publication fees will never be a consideration in the decision whether to publish.

The situations for entering the manuscript to review process after acceptance in the first step:
1. To put the paper in the review process the issues of "A and B" should be agreed in signed Cover Letter.
A) "Publication Fee": Due to journal indexing in Thomson Reuters' Master Journal List under "ESCI coverage (Web of Science-Core Collection)", SCOPUS and ISC-master journal list the publication fee will be charged $ 300.
B) "English Native Edit" to help non-English speaker writers, the manuscript doesn't reject due to "English Native" problems, but they have to perform it after final acceptance by a trusted company with a "certification" for the journal.
2. In order to help some writers who have limited time opportunity, options C and D has been created that is completely optional.
C) Rapid Review Process: for rapid reviewing (10 days to one month) $ 100 will be received. After rejection, any payment will not be returned.
D) Quick Release: for quick release of the final accepted manuscript in first forthcoming issue $ 300 will be received (separate from publication fee).

• Note: During the review process (after sending the article to reviewing, before the final status result), based on the "Copy Right", if authors wish to cancel, it will be eligible for one of the following:
- "Blacklist (Blacklist)": the manuscript profile with the name of authors will send to more than 7,000 journals associated with the Sports Sciences.
- "Cancellation Fee" for retraction of the manuscript from the review process the authors have to pay $ 1200.

• Before publishing, authors must check whether this journal is accepted by his employer or any authority he intends to submit his research work. We will not be responsible in this matter.

• The author must check before submitting the research works that whether the journal is listed in a specific database or not. In case of removal of the journal from any database before or after publishing the research work, the journal will not be responsible as we have no control on such databases.

• If at any time, due to any legal reason, if the journal stops accepting manuscripts or could not publish already accepted manuscripts, we will have the right to cancel all or any one of the manuscripts without any compensation or returning back any kind of processing cost.

• We try to process manuscripts rapidly but if for any reason online publication of a manuscript is delayed, we will take no responsibility for any consequences in delayed online publication.
