FROM THE EDITORIAL BOARD

The journal’s main goal:
- is to aid and facilitate national, international, and interdisciplinary scientific communication, and to strengthen the links between scientific researchers all over the world;
- distributing the information on the latest research and scientific work conducted by scientists and leading specialists in the fields of pedagogy of physical culture and sports.

The Journal considers for publication Original research and Review papers in the sub-disciplines relating to the broad Pedagogy of Physical Culture and Sports fields such as: theory and technique of physical training, physical activity and health, sports science, biomechanics, kinesiology, motor control and learning, public health (as relevant to sport and exercise), physical rehabilitation and recreation. All these fields should be considered from the point of view of pedagogy. 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 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 of Pedagogy. Therefore, the Editorial Board welcomes submissions not only from established areas of research, but also from new and emerging fields and those which are less well represented: interdisciplinary research in the sphere of physical culture and sport within the principles, rules and methods of pedagogy.

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 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 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, 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, Poland, Lithuania, Romania, Spain, Tunisia, Venezuela, Singapore, United Kingdom, Iran and USA).

We genuinely hope that the journal will contribute to the development of theory and practice of physical culture and sport, and strengthen interdisciplinary connection.
