Masters athletes (> 40 years old) systematically train and compete in various sporting disciplines. These athletes who can still achieve extremely high levels of performance, have been used as an experimental model of primary biological aging because they are essentially free from negative influences of physical inactivity. Master athletes require the continued attention of sport scientists and exercise physiologists to extend their limits of performance. This special issue aims to present innovative contributions to improve our knowledge about master athletes with a special focus on the age-related declines in performance and the physiological changes with advancing age. Scientific contributions such as original experimental study or literature review can be submitted as part of this special issue.

Over the past few years, we have seen the beginning of an upward shift in the theoretical and methodological challenges investigated by researchers in the field of emotions in sport. This special issue aims at providing an opportunity for researchers to propose innovative contributions participating to advance knowledge about the complexity of emotional processes in interpersonal and/ or intergroup sport contexts. A particular attention will be paid to works involving psychosocial variables, or original ground-breaking methods as well as literature reviews.

In recent years, studies to assess the impact of rehabilitation programs by APA have increased, contributing to build scientific evidences of the benefits of physical activity on health for special needs populations. This special issue aims to present the recent advancement of intervention research in APA, with a particular interest in multidisciplinary approaches. Scientific contributions such as original experimental study or literature review are encouraged.

Deadline: January 15th to January 30th 2018
