Movement is essential for living animals. For humans, movement begins in the embryonic stage and continues until death. Movement is a necessary component of a healthy lifestyle, and important for maintaining musculoskeletal health. Faulty movements and alignments are contributing factors to musculoskeletal pain and deterioration of physical health. Corrective exercises and restoration of precise movements are beneficial for improving musculoskeletal and movement health.

Studies and technologies aimed at identifying the contributing factors to faulty movements and musculoskeletal conditions have evolved over time; however, the cause and effect relationship between faulty movements and musculoskeletal pain syndrome is not clearly understood. Human movement is extremely complex, and there are many integrated components related to human health and longevity. Scientific research on human movement (i.e., biokinetics) evaluates exercise and movement in relation to injury prevention, promotion of health, quality of life and performance.

The Academy of Kinetic Ergocise based on Movement Analysis (KEMA) is a research institute focused on human movement and performance. The Journal of KEMA will publish manuscripts relating to human movement and performance that have a wide appeal, including original research papers, review articles, case studies, descriptive articles, and technical documents with clinical applications. Topics may include those associated with fitness and sports fields, innovative technologies for motion analysis, corrective exercises, human performance, and movement in the workplace.

The Journal of KEMA is interested in evidence- and data-based practice, data-informed practice and big data analytics in the field of biokinetics. Analysis of big data in biokinetics allows for the prediction, prevention, and improvement of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as the enhancement of human performance and quality of life. Big data analytics in the field of biokinetics will lead, promote and facilitate studies aimed at improving human movement health, as part of the fourth industrial revolution.


한국연구재단 등재학술지 선정

KEMA학회 학술지인 'JMST(Journal of Musculoskeletal Science and Technology)'가 2022년 한국연구재단의 학술지평가에서 등재학술지로 선정되었습니다.

등재지 선정을 위해 수고하고 애써주신 모든 분들에게 감사를 드리며, 아낌없는 헌신과 협조에 감사드립니다.

현재 JMST는 연구자들의 부담을 줄이기 위해 논문 심사료와 게재료를 받지 않고 있사오니, 많은 관심과 양질의 논문 투고를 부탁드립니다.

감사합니다.  

I don't want to open this window for a day.
