Research in Handball:

Team-handball (handball) has been an Olympic sport since 1972 (men) and 1976 (women). Handball is a complex sport in which individual performance as well as tactical components are of great importance. In the last years, we may note that research in this sport has increased considerably.

Journal of Human Kinetics is willing to publish in 2018 (June approximately) a Special Issue: "Research in handball". In this issue, papers related to any field including biomechanics, physiology, motor control, psychology, etc., focused on handball will be welcome.

We would like to invite you to contribute an article to the Journal. If you agree to accept our invitation, please send us your reply (by e-mail to before the 30th of September, 2017) at your earliest convenience, along with a short abstract (250 words) of your proposed article, and an approximate date of submission. The deadline for your submission (complete article) is the 30th of November 2017 (if you need more time, please, contact us).

We thank you in advance for your possible interest and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
