Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science Journal

The best research, test reviews, tutorials, commentaries, and discussions of theoretical and methodological issues in measurement and statistics as they apply to physical education and exercise science. A must for measurement specialists and practitioners interested in measurement of physical activity.

Printed four times a year, Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science (MPEES) covers original measurement research, special issues, and tutorials within six substantive disciplines of physical education and exercise science. Six of the seven sections of MPEES define the substantive disciplines within the purview of the original research to be published in the journal: Exercise Science, Physical Activity, Physical Education Pedagogy, Psychology, Research Methodology and Statistics, and Sport Management and Administration. The seventh section of MPEES, Tutorial and Teacher’s Toolbox, serves to provide an outlet for review and/or didactic manuscripts to be published in the journal. Special issues provide an avenue for a coherent set of manuscripts (e.g., four to five) to collectively focus in-depth on an important and timely measurement-related issue within the scope of MPEES. The primary aim of MPEES is to publish high-impact manuscripts, most of which will focus on original research, that fit within the scope of the journal.

"MPEES is the go-to journal for research related to measurement in all our disciplines—PE, exercise science, sport psychology, exercise physiology, and sport marketing. The journal offers those studying these disciplines a better understanding of current measurement trends in their field. It's also an excellent resource for anyone teaching measurement and evaluation courses in these fields. Here, faculty can use real measurement research studies in their classes. I would recommend that anyone teaching these courses subscribe now!"
