Scientific-Expert Journal of Anthropological Aspects of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation

About us

SportLogia journal is an Open Access journal since 2010, with double blind peer-review process, published by University of Banja Luka, Faculty of Physical Education end Sports. Since 2024, the journal has undergone a transition to a new web page. All pertinent information regarding the journal prior to this transfer can be accessed on this link.


This journal aims to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of sport science, focusing on five key areas:

  1. Exercise for Health:

    • Publish research on the effectiveness of different exercise programs for promoting physical and mental health across diverse populations.
    • Explore the physiological, biochemical, and psych-social mechanisms underlying the benefits of exercise.
    • Investigate the role of exercise in preventing and managing chronic diseases, such as cardio-respiratory disease, diabetes, obesity, etc.
    • Analyze the impact of exercise interventions on specific health conditions, like musculoskeletal disorders, cognitive decline, and mental health issues.
  2. Training Methodology:

    • Disseminate research on cutting-edge training methods for athletes of all levels and sports.
    • Explore the optimization of training programs based on individual needs, physiological characteristics, and competitive goals.
    • Analyze the effectiveness of different training modalities, such as strength training, endurance training, and skill-specific drills.
    • Investigate the role of technology and data analysis in optimizing training programs and monitoring progress.
  3. Sport Performance:

    • Publish research on the determinants of athletic performance in various sports.
    • Explore the physiological, biomechanical, and psychological factors that contribute to success in competition.
    • Analyze the effectiveness of different performance enhancement strategies, including nutrition, recovery techniques, and mental preparation.
    • Investigate the role of coaching and athlete-coach relationships in optimizing performance.
  4. Analysis and Diagnosis:

    • Disseminate research on advanced methods for analyzing and diagnosing athletic performance and injury risk.
    • Explore the use of biomechanics, physiology, and technology to identify movement patterns and factors contributing to injury.
    • Investigate the development and validation of diagnostic tools for early detection and prevention of sports injuries.
    • Analyze the effectiveness of different injury rehabilitation and prevention programs.
  5. Physical Education:

    • Publish research on best practices for teaching Physical Education in schools and other settings.
    • Explore innovative methods for promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyles among youth and adults.
    • Analyze the effectiveness of different Physical Education curricula and teaching approaches.
    • Investigate the role of Physical Education in promoting social and emotional development, as well as academic achievement.

By focusing on these five key areas, this journal strives to contribute to the advancement of sport science and its application to improve health, performance, and well-being for all.
