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.

Yung-Sheng Chen

I am a full-time academic professor with a specificity in neuromuscular and cardiovascular physiology in the Department of Exercise and Health Sciences at University of Taipei. I completed a M.Sc. degree in Sports Sciences from Brunel University, the UK, in 2007 and a Ph.D. degree in the School of Health and Human Sciences, Southern Cross University, Australia in 2011. My current research interests focus on the effects of training load monitoring, exercise recovery intervention on autonomic nervous function, effects of biofeedback training on cardiovascular adaptation, and effects of ageing on neuromuscular function, physical activity and health, and football/futsal sciences

Silvia Comani

I am Full Professor of Applied Physics, affiliated to the Department of Neuroscience, Imaging and Clinical Sciences, at the University “G. d’Annunzio” of Chieti – Pescara, Italy.
My research focuses on biomedical signal processing, mainly on development of methods for removal of artefacts from EEG signals recorded in adults and neonates, and of methods to study brain dynamics and inter-organ functional dynamics in adults and infants to detect the neural correlates of behavior in studies adopting a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach.

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.
