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.

Luca Correale

Dr. Luca Correale is a Research fellow at the Department of Public Health, Experimental Medicine and Forensic Science, University of Pavia. His main research areas include physical activity for health and exercise in neurological conditions.

Victor S Coswig

Dr. Victor Coswig has a bachelor's degree, a Master's degree and a PhD in Physical Education from the Superior School of Physical Education of the Federal University of Pelotas (Pelotas, Brazil). He is currently Adjunct Professor and Researcher at the Physical Education and Sports Institute of the Federal University of Ceará (Fortaleza, Brazil), where he is investigating topic related to sports medicine and training.

His current research focuses on acute and chronic responses to exercise, training and sports practice, mainly, but not exclusive to combat sports performance.

Zachary James Crowley-McHattan

Zac completed his undergraduate (2006), Honors (2007) and Ph.D. (2013) at Southern Cross University and has been a lecturer at SCU since 2012. Zac is broadly interested in investigating the control and learning of motor skills in both functional and sporting contexts. His primary area of research is in neuromuscular changes with ageing and exercise but also has an interest in the potential application of cross-education on neuromuscular adaptations in injury and fatigue.

Stanisław H. Czyż

Stanisław Czyż is Associate Professor within the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport Sciences at the Wroclaw University of Health and Sport Sciences in Poland. He is Associate Professor (Incubator of Kinanthropology Research) at Masaryk University in Brno, Czechia; and Extraordinary Associate Professor within the Physical Activity, Sport, and Recreation focus group at North-West University, South Africa.

Gian Pietro Emerenziani

Bachelor in Sport Sciences, summa cum laude (2004) and Specializations Degree in Preventive and Adapted Physical Activity at University of Rome "Foro Italico", summa cum laude (2006). On 2010 he finished the Post Doctoral course in Biomedical and Methodological Aspects of Preventive and Adapted Physical Activities at University of Rome "Foro Italico". During his career, he deepened his knowledge and scientific and clinical skills in the fields of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences focusing on the effects of different Training Program on health in Obese and Older subjects. Since 2009 he has taught as expert in the subject at University of Rome "Foro Italico", then in 2016 as a holder of single courses and integrated courses at the University of Catanzaro "Magna Graecia".The number of publications on indexed peer-reviewed journals with Impact Factor (41 since 2008) and the number of citations received from them (483) shows his high albeit young scientific activity.In 2017 he obtained the MIUR grant (FFABR). He is a member of the Editorial Board of the “Motricidade” , “PeerJ" and "Austin Sports Medicine" journals. Moreover, he is the Reviewer of several international journals, such as Eating and Weight Disorders and International Journal of Sports Medicine. Member of the Italian Society of Sport Sciences (SISMES) and of Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine (SIAMS).

Marco Filardi

Marco Filardi, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Experimental Psychology at Department of Basic Medicine, Neuroscience and Sense Organs, University of Bari Aldo Moro (Italy).

His research interests involve sleep and circadian rhythms in clinical (e.g., primary sleep disorders, neurodegenerative disorders, psychiatric disorders, and neurodevelopmental disorders), and non-clinical populations (e.g., children, adolescents, and elderly), sleep methodology (e.g., multisignal wearables, actigraphy, non-linear movement analysis, PSG, signal processing), neuroimaging correlates of sleep disturbances and cognitive deficits in sleep disorders and neurodegenerative conditions.

Francesco Fischetti

Associate Professor at University of Bari. Professor of Training Methodology and Psychobiology applied to sport. Researcher in sports sciences since 1986. It has more than 100 publications.

Liang Gao

Dr. Liang Gao currently works as a senior Research Fellow at the Center of Experimental Orthopaedics, Saarland University, Germany. His clinical interests include sports medicine, arthroplasty, and traumatology. His research focuses on joint preservation and orthobiologics.

Dr. Gao studied Medicine in China and Germany with intensive fellowship training in both Asia and Europe. He completed the Musculoskeletal Surgical Oncology residency training at Peking University Medical Center, China. Moreover, he obtained his master of science degree (Radiation Oncology) from Heidelberg University, Germany and his doctorate (Biological Therapy) summa cum laude from Saarland University, Germany.

Dr. Gao is the Member of the Basic Science Committee of International Cartilage Regeneration & Joint Preservation Society (ICRS), the Member of the Early Career Investigator Committee of Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI), and the Founding Member of the Sino Euro Orthopaedics Society (SEOS).

Hugo A. Kerhervé

I am a sport and exercise scientist with a multidisciplinary background in exercise physiology, biomechanics and motor control.

I am interested in multifactorial approaches to human acute and chronic adaptation to various stresses, through the study of:

- the factors of performance in individual and team sports in participants with and without disabilities;
- the human-equipment and human-environment interface in performance and injury prevention;
- exercise interventions for health and well-being throughout life and across cultures;
- age-specific and sex-specific factors of cardiovascular, biomechanical and neuromuscular adaptation.
