Communications in Kinesiology (CiK) is the flagship journal for the  Society of Transparency, Openness, and Replication in Kinesiology (STORK). CiK accepts submissions from across the discipline of kinesiology, including biomechanics; coaching and sports pedagogy; exercise and sport psychology; physical activity, health, and disease; physiology and nutrition; sensorimotor control; sports medicine and rehabilitation; and training, testing, and performance analysis.


Acceptance decisions will not be made based on a study's outcomes. Instead, emphasis is placed on full reporting, transparency, disclosure, and data sharing  CiK accepts experimental research, observational research, methodological tutorials, opinions, and narrative & critical reviews. Observational and experimental research may be original or a replication. Systematic and scoping reviews, and accompanying meta-analyses, are now accepted at CiK if protocols are registered a priori. However, we strongly encourage authors to submit these types of artcles to our special issue "Reports in Sport and Exercise" (RiSE) as a registered report.

Vol. 1 No. 3: Reports in Sport and Exercise

This is the special issue of the journal Communications in Kinesiology highlighting articles which meet the editorial standards for high rigor, reproducibility, and transparency.
