Hi, I'm Ryan, the Marketing Manager and chief blogger here at Human Kinetics Europe Ltd. As somewhat of a washed-up athlete I've always had a passion for health, fitness and sport science. I now find myself working at the world’s biggest independent publisher of sport, health, dance and fitness resources. This means I get unrestricted access to all the best, most interesting, scientifically-proven writing on sports science. Of course I'm going to share this with you!


  1. Regina says

    Hi Ryan, I am a post graduate student whose paper got accepted into the ISCJ. My supervisor wants me to apply for an award by my university for excellence in research and I need proof of the reputation or impact factor of the journal. Since the ISCJ does not currently have an impact factor, how can I establish the reputation of the journal? Thanks for your help!

    • Congratulations on your accepted paper, Regina! Though ISCJ does not currently have an impact factor, the journal follows the same publishing standards that are expected for journals which do have impact factors. Those standards include: inclusion of a peer-review process, ethical publishing practices (e.g., ISCJ does not follow unethical policies such as instructions for self-citation nor does it require a fee for authors to submit), adherence to international editorial conventions (e.g., descriptive article titles, complete bibliographic information, etc.), among others. Additionally, ISCJ is an official journal of the International Council for Coaching Excellence, and holds an h5-index = 11. We encourage you to visit the ISCJ site to obtain more detailed information that may fit the criteria you are seeking:
