TWU faculty member named editor of international biomechanics journal


DENTON — Dr. Young-Hoo Kwon, associate professor of kinesiology at Texas Woman’s University, recently was named editor of Sports Biomechanics, the official journal of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports (ISBS).

Dr. Kwon is the first editor from the United States for this publication. He will serve as editor until the end of 2010.

“This appointment is the result of my dedication to research in the area of biomechanics and sports biomechanics and of my service to ISBS. I look forward to the chance of further professional development,” Dr. Kwon said.

“Being editor of Sports Biomechanics also will provide my students with insight into the review and editorial process of a scientific journal. It is my hope that our biomechanics graduate program within the kinesiology department receives more recognition from professional peers and potential students.”
Sports Biomechanics is the scientific journal of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports, the only international society dedicated to biomechanics in sports. The journal focuses on ways to improve sports performance and reduce the incidence of injury, and to communicate this knowledge to sports scientists, coaches and sports participants.

Sports Biomechanics is published three times a year and will become a quarterly publication in 2008.

“I see this year as the beginning of the next generation,” Dr. Kwon said. “The last five years were more for establishing the journal, but my main task from now on will be to bring the journal to a new level.”

Dr. Kwon has served as reviewer for more than 10 research journals in the areas of exercise science, biomechanics, and biomedical engineering, and is on editorial boards of several journals. Prior to this appointment, Dr. Kwon served on the executive editorial board of Sports Biomechanics and as the vice president for publications for the ISBS for last five years.
