On February 12, 2008, the Journal of Human Sport and Exercise was inaugurated with a group of professionals belonging to the Research Group on Physical Activity and Sports Sciences of the University of Alicante. The beginnings were hard, since, at that time, proposing a publication only in digital form, open access and only in English, was for Spanish journals, almost like a dare, however time proved us right, and this editorial project grew and developed as one of the most important journals in the field of knowledge. Now again, we want to announce a momentous change in our editorial. After a careful evaluation and considering the challenges and opportunities we face in the publishing industry, we have made the decision to make a change to a new publisher with the help of the Spanish Sports Analysis Association, which takes over from the previous publisher.

Likewise, we want to express our sincere gratitude to all the reviewers and authors for their support and accompanying us throughout the years. During our career, we have sought to offer you quality content and keep up to date with your preferences and needs that were developing in the field of Sports Sciences. However, we believe that the time has come to take a step forward and embrace new possibilities of development and growth towards a future of the subject that is more digital, more sustainable, healthier and more innovative.

It is true that the publishing world is constantly evolving and we must adapt to changes to remain relevant. The new publisher with whom we will partner has a clear vision and an innovative approach that will allow us to expand our horizons and offer you a 360-degree experience, in an even more enriching scientific world.

One of the main reasons that has led us to make this change is the opportunity to work with new talents. The new publishing house has a creative and diverse team that will allow us to expand our catalogue and offer you a wider range of genres and themes. We are excited about the new contributions that can be discovered and the scientific advances that can reach you for free.

Additionally, this change will allow us to improve the distribution and availability of our articles. The new publisher has a broader distribution network, which means that you will be able to find our articles on digital platforms around the world. We want to make sure our authors have easy access to our publications, no matter where they are located.

We understand that this change may raise concerns and questions, and we want to assure you that we are committed to maintaining the quality and excellence that we have always sought. Our editorial team will work closely with the new publisher of the Spanish Association of Sports Performance Analysis to ensure that each article meets our quality standards and that we continue to provide you with open and innovative science.

We deeply appreciate your continued support and hope you will join us in this new stage. We are convinced that this change will allow us to grow and improve as a scientific journal, and that together we will be able to continue enjoying great publication moments.

Kind regards,

José Antonio Pérez-Turpin on behalf of JHSE EB.
