    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 in the sports sciences.
     The journal publishes not only original articles and review articles but also editorials and short communications.
     The Journal is published quarterly in electronic editions.
     All research articles and review papers have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized (double-blind) refereeing by three reviewers (a statistical and two scientific reviewers).
    All manuscripts submitted by non-English speakers should be edited by a native English-speaking person before submission, and even after corrections.


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. The payment method is via PayPal.
Besides, it is noticed that:
  • The journal has no article submission charges.
  • Authors’ ability to pay publication fees will never be a consideration in the decision whether to publish.
     - International Authors:
    A) "Publication Fee": Due to journal indexing in Clarivate Analytics' Master Journal List under "ESCI coverage (Web of Science-Core Collection)", and SCOPUS (Q3, SJR=0.18), the publication fee will be charged $ 500 (+ $ 50 for PayPal's money transfer).
    B) "English Native Edit" to help non-English speaker writers, the manuscript doesn't reject due to "English Native" problems, but journal office performs Native English Edit after final acceptance by trusted editors with no extra charges.
    C) Rapid Review Process: The payment for rapid review has been removed but the journal guarantee that all submissions will be reviewed in 8 weeks with no extra charges.
     D) Quick Release: This charge removed too and the journal will publish every accepted article in three working weeks with no extra charges.
      E) "Cancellation Fee" for retraction of the manuscript from the review process the authors have to pay $ 1500 for a penalty.


• 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 the 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 the delayed online publication.
