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.

Silvia Comani

I am Associate Professor of Applied Physics, Director of the BIND – Behavioral Imaging and Neural Dynamics Center, and affiliated to the Department of Neuroscience, Imaging and Clinical Sciences, at the University “G. d’Annunzio” of Chieti – Pescara, Italy.
My research focus is on biomedical signal processing, mainly on functional and effective connectivity in adults and children to detect the neural correlates of behavior in studies adopting a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach.

Donna completed her Ph.D. in the Department of Kinesiology at UNCG in 2007. Prior to coming to UNCG, Donna completed her B.S. and M.Ed. at Boston University in Curriculum and Instruction.

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).

Amador García-Ramos

I am an associate professor at the Department of Physical Education and Sport, Faculty of Sport Science, University of Granada, Spain. I completed my bachelor, master, and PhD studies at the University of Granada (Spain). My research is related to the area of Kinesiology with an emphasis on strength training and testing for a variety of purposes (sport performance and health improvement).

Bruno Gonçalves

Dr. Bruno Gonçalves is an Assistante Professor at the University of Évora (Évora, Portugal) and researcher at the Comprehensive Health Research Centre (CHRC). This new multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research centre aims to support, develop and foster clinical, public health and health services research. Dr. Gonçalves graduated with a PhD in collective movement behaviour in association football from the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro (Vila Real, Portugal) in 2017, where he developed expertise in capturing and filtering data using high-tech instruments and also in advanced processing computations. This expertise has led him to build a solid national and international reputation in collective movement behaviour and team sports performance analysis. He authored over 100 papers in journals with an impact factor and has received several awards honours. His current research interests are identifying new variables that can capture collective, exploratory, adaptive, and emergent behaviour principles.

Michael WR Holmes

Mike Holmes is an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Neuromuscular Mechanics and Ergonomics at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Mike completed a Bachelor of Kinesiology (Honours) and a Master of Science (MSc. Biomechanics) from Memorial University. He obtained a PhD in Biomechanics from McMaster University and completed a one year post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Waterloo.

Combining neuroscience and biomechanics, his work aims to better understand how people become injured at work. The focus of his research program is to better understand work-related upper extremity disorders by identifying mechanisms of injury and pain related to the neuromuscular and biomechanical properties of muscles and ligaments. Using laboratory based techniques, including electromyography, motion capture, electrical stimulation, medical imaging and computer modelling, his fundamental approach leads to workplace applications and investigations.

Justin WL Keogh

A/Prof Keogh's primary research interests focus on the role of muscular hypertrophy, strength and power in functional performance; and how to optimise the transfer from training via motor learning principles. Portions of this research focus on strength and power sports such as strongman, powerlifting, rugby and Australian rules football. Considerable research also focuses on older adults with chronic diseases/geriatric conditions e.g. cancer and sarcopenia, with prostate cancer and residential aged care (nursing homes) being a focus. Some of the older adult research also uses quantitative and qualitative approaches to examine the perceived barriers, facilitators, risks and benefits of exercise in these chronic disease groups.

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.
