Dear Reader,

With the publication of each new issue, the International Scientific Journal Acta Kinesiologica turns a new page in its ongoing journey of development, continually enhancing the quality of our peer review process and the calibre of the scientific articles we accept for publication. The recent conferment of an Impact Factor within the Web Of Science Core Collection has raised our quality benchmark to a new level. Furthermore, the journal has recently gained accreditation from ANVUR (Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes) as a Scientific Journal within Area 11. We are actively undertaking initiatives to increase the recognizability and visibility of our journal, with the next step being inclusion in the prestigious Scopus Database.

The collaboration between the traditional publisher (DPTZK) and the European Institute for Talent, Education, Research, and Development as a co-publishing partner has enabled the implementation of the digital Open Journal Systems (OJS). This collaboration has facilitated the standardization and complete digitalization of all stages of the publication process. In your hands, you hold an issue that, as endorsed by international reviewers and the Acta Kinesiologica Journal Editorial Board, contains articles of the highest quality. We firmly believe that this publication will provide new insights at both the scientific and professional levels in the fields of Kinesiology, Health, and Sport, significantly contributing to a deeper understanding of these critically important and socially beneficial disciplines.

Aware of the increased number of submissions that did not meet our stringent criteria, we encourage authors not to be deterred. We invite you to submit the results of new research or revised papers based on reviewer feedback for the next issue, which is being prepared for the first quarter of 2024. Once again, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the authors, reviewers, editors, proof-readers, members of the Organizational Board, and all other contributors to this enriching scientific narrative for their invaluable contributions.

Prof. Johnny Padulo
