FROM THE EDITORIAL BOARD

The Journal considers for publication Original research and Review papers in the sub-disciplines relating generally to the broad physical training (physical education) and sports science fields such as: theory and technique of physical training, physical activity and health, sports science, biomechanics, kinesiology, exercise physiology, motor control and learning, sport and exercise psychology, sports nutrition, public health (as relevant to sport and exercise), physical rehabilitation and recreation. Journal publishes research that reports educational practices in all appropriate contexts, but not limited to, school physical education, club sport, and active leisure programs. In these contex pedagogy (physiology) refers to the interacting and interdependent components of knowledge and curriculum, learners and learning, and teachers/coaches, teaching/coaching and teacher/coach education. The journal particularly welcomes manuscripts that consider the interactions of each of these components and their practice in specific contexts. The Editorial Board therefore welcomes submissions not only from established areas of research, but also from new and emerging fields and those which are less well represented, such as socio-cultural studies, biomedical studies, etc.

The main reason for launching such periodical journal, was because of the sudden decrease of people who study physical culture and sport, and the decline of their level of health. At the same time on the world sport arena, there was a considerable increase in competition, where there appeared a new form of sport, where sporting events are as a performance. All of these needs are to be take into account, because it changes the conditions of the sport activity in the training process. There is a need to search for more effective methods involving people, and to engage them in physical culture and forming a positive attitude for their health. In this aspect, the journal can join the efforts of researchers in deciding complex problems of physical education and sport in the height of perfection.

There are new technological decisions in different areas of knowledge, which attempt, in its adaptation, to solve the problems of physical culture and sport, and were the reason for careful studies both the positive and negative influence on the human organism. First of all, the matter is about coordination and experimentation of the comprehensive character of psycho-educational and medical biological directives on the basement of physical culture and sport methods. Special importance have been researched, that are directed to the rising of the quality of a life of children, teenagers, students, middle-aged and elderly people on the basement of physical culture and sport. An important task in these research works was to decide the problems of physical rehabilitation of the sportsmen and their inhabitants.

It is necessary to mention that informational un-cooperation in the scientific development, complicates the access to results of the researchers.

In this aspect journal "Pedagogics, Psychology, Medical-Biological Problems of Physical Training and Sports" concentrates on the decisions of most interesting and topical projects, thesis, conference and seminars. Such a position gives an opportunity for the acquaintance of most progressive technologies of physical training and education, new directions for the development of science about health and healthy lifestyle, health physical culture and exercise therapy, modern research works in amateur and professional sport. Certainly, there is a number of similar Ukrainian periodicals that have comparable goals. But the journal, "Pedagogics, Psychology, Medical-Biological Problems of Physical Training and Sports", is unique journal in Ukraine that joins several branches of knowledge and focuses on the singularity and novelty of articles. The Editorial Board is comprised of most authoritative researchers from different countries (Ukraine, Russia, Belorussia, Poland, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Slovakia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, China and USA).

We genuinely hope that the journal "Pedagogics, Psychology, Medical-Biological Problems of Physical Training and Sports" will contribute to the development of theory and practice of physical culture and sport, and strengthen interdisciplinary connection.
