Reports in Sport and Exercise (RiSE) accepts submissions from across the broad fields of Sport and Exercise (a.k.a. Kinesiology, movement science). RiSE aims to highlight the most reproducible and methodologically rigorous research in our fields. Novelty, anticipated impact, and surprise of research results will never be criteria for publication.
Submissions to RiSE follow two routes: (1) registered reports, and (2) pre-registration. For registered reports, the introduction and methods are reviewed first, before data are collected. For pre-registered submissions, a supporting document should accompany your submission with a timestamp dating when the work was preregistered, how your sample size was calculated, your smallest effect size of interest (if appropriate), and how you have controlled for bias. Please note, that simply including a preregistration form without the required detail or suitable justifications may result in the submission being rejected from RiSE.
The journal also welcomes investigations with null results and is designed to reduce publication bias and the file-drawer problem. Acceptance decisions will not be made based on the study outcomes.
Submissions that involve the study of physical activity, in the broadest sense, are welcome. These submissions may fall into several journal sections, 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. If you are unsure if your manuscript fits, please reach out to the editorial team.
Reports in Sport and Exercise (RiSE)
Reports in Sport and Exercise aims to highlight the most reproducible and methodologically rigorous research in Sport and Exercise. Novelty, anticipated impact, and surprise of research results will never be criteria for publication. Acceptance decisions will not be made based on the study outcomes and we welcome investigations with null results. Reports in Sport and Exercise is designed to improve standard, reduce publication bias, and eradicate the file-drawer problem.
Reports in Sport and Exercise accepts Original Investigations, Systematic Reviews, Meta-Analyses, Scoping Reviews, and Replications.
Reports in Sport and Exercise is a Diamond Open Access Journal. We do not charge fees to publish or access the manuscripts submitted to this site. Instead of charging prohibitive fees and creating barriers to knowledge, we rely on the goodwill of members from the Society for Transparency, Openness, and Replication in Kinesiology to operate. If you are submitting to or reading an article on this site, please consider joining the society or making a donation.
Indexing and Archiving
Reports in Sport and Exercise issues each submission with a DOI and provides longterm storage of articles through Portico. Indexing is completed via CrossRef and we plan to submit to PubMed/Europe PMC once established, as per their requirements. Should you require us to provide additional indexing, please let us know. We are a society owned and operated journal and take your feedback on board.
