About this Research Topic
We are delighted to call for the inaugural Exercise Physiology “Rising Stars” article collection. This compilation will showcase the excellent work of internationally recognized researchers in the early stages of their independent careers (i.e. within first 5 years of their postdoctoral period or their first faculty position). This collection is intended to recognise the potential of “Rising Stars” to influence the future directions in their respective fields. All “Rising Stars” researchers will be considered with nominations by experts in the field, including Editors of the Journal, encouraged. The work to be presented in this collection will highlight the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of exercise physiology.
Physical exercise has been recognised as important for human health for thousands of years, beginning with ancient cultures. Hippocrates, Plato, Aristotle, and the Roman physician Galen were the earliest-recorded and most well-known promoters of the beneficial effects of physical exercise. Since these times, several dedicated laboratories around the world have been established with many researchers conducting numerous investigations related to exercise physiology; nevertheless, a cornerstone of all laboratories is the development of new researchers. Our understanding of exercise physiology would not have reached where we are today (and where we will be in the future) without these talented and emerging researchers. Given the evolution of exercise physiology, the field has incorporated a range of basic to applied scientific investigations, as well as a range of end-users (e.g. researchers, athletes, coaches, physiologists, and clinical/public health professionals).
We are happy to receive a range of manuscript types such as original research, reviews, minireviews, opinions and hypotheses on various topics related to exercise physiology. The collection will be open to human, animal, cellular and molecular aspects, provided that they are relevant to the physiological mechanisms and/or adaptations related to exercise. New articles will be added to this collection as they are published.
The Editors look forward to your submission and advancement of the Exercise Physiology “Rising Stars”.
