Handbook of Research for Biomechanics and Anthropometry in Sport Science by Soheila Yavarmasroor and Kaveh Hariri Asli Zahra Hojjati ZidashtiEditor Biography: Zahra Hojjati Zidashti, PhD is Associated Professor in Exercise Physiology. She is author or coauthor of many publications in the field of sport nutrition, women in sports, health and sport, anthropometry in sports, exercise science and exercise physiology. As an expert in Physical Education she has teaching experience in different universities. During her professional career, she has received many prestigious awards. She served as member of Scientific Committee in many international and national conferences. Dr. Hojjati consults about exercise training for professional teams and health centers. Book Description: This book provides new methods to novel applications of existing methods to gain understanding of the material and/or structural behavior of new and advanced systems. The authors provide innovative chapters on the growth of educational, scientific, and research activities among athletes and provides a medium for mutual communication between international sports academia. This book publishes significant research reporting new methodologies and important applications in the fields of anthropometric measuring and software. Software and anthropometric-based research findings to date contribute to the scholarly debates over mortality trends, the nature of slavery, and the outcomes of industrialization and economic development. On the other hand, these ideas were included in the proper analysis to provide a dynamic response to the shortcomings of body motion. This book also describes advanced technology and high speed detectors/equipment to determine the operational procedures to avoid hazards on human health, economics and human biology. Consequently, the results within this book will help to reduce the risk of sport injuries. Target Audience: This book includes the latest coverage of sport databases and the development of new computational methods and efficient algorithms for sport & engineering software in order to reduce the risk of sportswomen activities.

Minding Bodies by Susan HrachWhat happens to teaching when you consider the whole body (and not just "brains on sticks")? Starting from new research on the body--aptly summarized as "sitting is the new smoking"--Minding Bodies aims to help instructors improve their students' knowledge and skills through physical movement, attention to the spatial environment, and sensitivity to humans as more than "brains on sticks." It shifts the focus of adult learning from an exclusively mental effort toward an embodied, sensory-rich experience, offering new strategies to maximize the effectiveness of time spent learning together on campus as well as remotely. Minding Bodies draws from a wide range of body/mind research in cognitive psychology, kinesiology, and phenomenology to bring a holistic perspective to teaching and learning. The embodied learning approaches described by Susan Hrach are inclusive, low-tech, low-cost strategies that deepen the development of disciplinary knowledge and skills. Campus change-makers will also find recommendations for supporting a transformational mission through an attention to students' embodied learning experiences.
Writing and Publishing Research in Kinesiology, Health, and Sport Science by Timothy Baghurst; Jason DeFreitasDrawing on real-world experience and presented in an informal and accessible manner, Writing and Publishing Research in Kinesiology, Health, and Sport Science provides upper-level students and early-career academics with an essential resource to aid in disseminating research and publishing their first papers. Logically structured to take researchers through each step of the publishing process, the book offers subject-specific advice on developing every aspect of theoretical, applied, or position papers, including: * the title, abstract and keywords * method, results, and discussion sections * referencing * finding the right journal and submitting a paper * revising content in light of peer review * presenting papers. This is important and accessible reading for any researchers seeking advice on publishing their work in fields including but not limited to kinesiology, health, exercise science, physical education, or recreation.
