Human Kinetics is pleased to announce the launch of Journal of Motor Learning and Development (JMLD), which publishes research that advances the understanding of movement skill acquisition and expression across the lifespan. JMLD aims to provide a platform for innovative research related to factors that influence the learning or re-learning of skills in individuals with various movement-relevant abilities and disabilities. It publishes high-quality studies that provide insight into training or therapeutic interventions that promote motor proficiency, or reduce deficits and decline, in any age group. Research that crosses traditional divides between physical, cognitive, and social domains in motor learning and development is especially encouraged.
JMLD publishes original articles, including reviews and studies using experimental and non-experimental designs, as well as psychological, neuroscientific, physiological, and biomechanical analyses that allow insights into the various dimensions of movement learning and development. Special consideration will be given to research using methods appropriate for applied research, such as field studies, observational analysis, and qualitative data.
