I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Andrew P Lavender

Senior Lecturer in the School of Science, Psychology and Sport, Federation University Australia. I completed a BSc and a MSc in Sport Science at Edith Cowan University and PhD at Yokohama City University. I am teaching applied research for exercise science and motor control. Currently, I am conducting research in exercise for healthy ageing, exercise induced muscle damage and eccentric training and my main research interest is in sport related concussion and subconcussion.

Jeremy P. Loenneke

Dr. Loenneke is the director of the Kevser Ermin Applied Physiology Laboratory and his research group’s primary focus is on skeletal muscle adaptations to exercise with and without the application of blood flow restriction. He is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and a member of the American Physiological Society.

Julien Louis

Dr Julien Louis is Reader in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology at Liverpool John Moores University (UK). Julien is also Associate Researcher at the French Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance (INSEP, Paris), and member of the Editorial Board of the European Journal of Sport Science, Journal of Sport Sciences, Frontiers in Sports and Active Living, PlosOne, and Nutrients. Julien's research focuses on training, nutrition and recovery strategies for optimising sport performance, with an emphasis on elite sport. Julien is also interested in the effects of ageing on sport performance with masters athletes at the centre of his research. In parallel to his academic roles, Julien regularly works as Consultant Nutritionist in Elite sport. He is the current performance Nutritionist of AG2R-Citroen professional cycling team, and previous appointments include Liverpool Football Club, Lille Football Club, the French Football Federation, and many Olympic sports.

Guillermo Mendez-Rebolledo

Guillermo Méndez-Rebolledo received his Doctoral Degree in Physical Activity and Sport Science from Universidad Pablo de Olavide (2020), his Master in Health Sciences and Sport from Universidad Finis Terrae (2013) and his Bachelor of Physical Therapy from Universidad de Talca (2009).

Prof. Méndez-Rebolledo currently works at the Escuela de Kinesiología, University Santo Tomás (Chile).

Davor Plavec

Davor Plavec, MD, MSc, PhD, is Professor of Occupational Health and Sports Medicine. Born in Zagreb, Croatia in 1962, Prof. Plavec graduated in 1987, and received his master's degree in 1991, and his doctorate in 1999 at the Medical Faculty, University of Zagreb. In 2004 he specialized in occupational medicine, and in 2009 he became the Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Medicine in Osijek. In 2013 he specialized in sports medicine, and in 2019 became Full Professor within the Faculty of Medicine in Osijek. Prof. Plavec is Lecturer at the Medical Faculty of the University of Zagreb (study in English) and at the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Health in Osijek. Since 2005 he has been working at the Srebrnjak Children's Hospital as an Assistant Director for the quality of health care, and Head of the Research department where his field of work is improving the quality of health care, clinical research, sports medicine, allergy, pulmonology and cardiopulmonary function diagnostics. He is a member of a number of professional societies of the Croatian Medical Association in which he has held or is holding responsible positions for several terms, as well as the European Respiratory Society and the European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology. During his scientific and professional work, he has published more than 300 publications, of which more than 110 articles are in peer-reviewed journals with more than 2000 citations.

Adam W Potter

Research Physiologist, Deputy Chief, Biophysics and Biomedical Modeling Division (BBMD), US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM).

Part-time faculty, School of Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM), American Public University System (APUS).

Research portfolio spans across the applied sciences, from thermal manikin testing, to the cutting-edge of product development (computer-based decision aids, wireless communications, and wearable sensors). Current scientific work areas include: 1) individualized mathematical modeling of thermoregulatory responses to clothing, environment, activities, with the inclusion of components for rest and recovery, 2) studies of metabolic costs over complex terrain, 3) real-time assessments of ground reaction forces and energy demands during locomotion and load carriage, and 4) innovative approaches to data management and the application of mathematics in integrative physiology.

Matteo Vandoni

Matteo Vandoni is the scientific director of the Laboratory of Adapted Motor Activity of the University of Pavia.
His research topics are: the study of childhood obesity and diabetes exercise - the changes in the autonomic nervous system in pediatric and adult subjects - the study of the implications of physical exercise on health – the study of functional performance in developmental age.

Jesus Vera

Professor of Optometry and Vision Sciences, University of Granada, Spain.

Most of my research is focused on the effects of physical activity on the health status, mainly for the prevention and management of different cardiovascular and ocular
diseases. Currently researching Optometry, Sports Medicine, Sport Psychology and Neuropsychology.

Greg Wood

My research examines the attentional processes underlying the learning and skilled performance of visually-guided movement tasks. My areas of expertise are focused on understanding the visual (via eye-tracking) and cortical (via EEG, TMS) mechanisms behind movement impairments (e.g., Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), Stroke) and in patients learning to use myoelectric prosthetic hands. I am also interested in the use of virtual reality in sport and clinical contexts.

Li Zuo

Assistant Professor, Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (FACSM), and Director of Molecular Physiology and Rehabilitation Research Lab at The Ohio State University, College of Medicine.
