From this global perspective, JSHS has a unique opportunity to become a leading scholarly journal that positions itself in the world to help mainstream international efforts of promoting research on sport, exercise, and health in and for developing countries.
The unique opportunity and geographic location allows JSHS to focus on publishing full-scope, in-depth, and cutting-edge research worldwide. In particular, JSHS welcomes original, empirical studies on ethnically traditional practices for health enhancement such as those on health effects of Chinese find more traditional exercises.
