    Subject: [BIOMCH-L] Special Call for Biomechanics Papers on Ball Hitting

    Sports Biomechanics

    Call for Papers: Special Issue - "Hit the Ball"

    Hit the Ball. It sounds simple, but the biomechanics of successful hitting are complex. In fact, in a USA Today survey, hitting a baseball, hitting a golf ball, and returning a tennis serve were 3 of the 5 hardest things to do in sports ( In an attempt to address this challenge, the Sports Biomechanics journal will publish a special issue in 2011. This special issue will include original research and review articles. Submitted articles can present biomechanical data on hitting the ball in baseball, softball, tennis, cricket, table tennis, racquetball, squash, field hockey, or other sports. Articles should generate knowledge to improve sports performance and/or reduce the incidence of injury, and to communicate this knowledge to sports scientists, coaches, and sports participants. Possible topics include swing kinematics, kinetics, factors related to ball exit velocity, injury mechanism, equipment properties related to ball impact and hitting performance, etc.

    Author Guidelines and Submission Deadline:
    Instructions for authors and submission guidelines can be found at the journal's homepage: .

    All papers will be subjected to the peer-review procedures of the journal. Papers should be submitted online at . Mark that the manuscript is for a special issue and enter "Hit the Ball" as the issue title.
