    Special Issue on Doping and Sports


    The aim of sports is to strengthen the physique and improve health. Any attempt to improve the performance of competition by means of drugs is contrary to this purpose. Doping is a prohibited drug or an improper way used by athletes in order to improve training effect and competition results. Many sports organizations have inhibited the use of doping and have very strict rules and penalties for people who are caught using them.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring doping and sports. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • The negative effect of doping on competitive sports
    • Anti-doping policies
    • Economic analysis of doping in competitive sports
    • Hidden drugs in foods and drinks
    • Exercise fatigue research
    • Gene doping in sports
    • Doping detection technology

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Doping and Sports” should be chosen during your submission.
