n African Journal for Physical Activity and Health Sciences (AJPHES) - Editorial

Volume 22 Number 1-1
  • ISSN : 2411-6939


This issue marks the transition from the previous name of the journal, i.e. African Journal for Physical, Health Education, Recreation and Dance (AJPHERD) to its modified name, African Journal for Physical Activity and Health Sciences (AJPHES). After 21 years of AJPHERD's publication, the editorial board took a decision in 2014 to modify the name of the journal to AJPHES as the new name more aptly reflects the focus of the journal and the articles it publishes. It should be noted that the name modication does not affect the editorial policy and practice of the journal as it was also based on the recommendation of ASSAf (Academy of Science of South Africa) which coordinates the activities of South African scholarly journals for the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). It is pertinent to note that AJPHES is listed in the 2016 DHET register of accredited journals for research subsidy purposes. It is hoped that the new name - AJPHES will continue to provide the impetus and synergy needed to maintain the journal's high publication standards in the years to come. This issue of AJPHES is published in two parts, i.e. AJPHES issues 1:1 and 1:2, each containing 12 and 13 articles, respectively, which address topical issues in health and physical activity.
