AK Journal rate card

One of the world's most influential and widely read kinesiology magazines

A large and untapped market. Our goals are to reach every practitioner in the world who incorporates kinesiology in his work. This includes firstly to promote the expansion of kinesiology by creating a resource that offers ideas that are both informative and useful immediately, and secondly to spread the principles and proven techniques to practitioners around the world who promote good health and well-being.

The International Journal of Applied Kinesiology and Kinesiologic Medicine will cover the latest findings in kinesiologic research; the most important advances in technology and products relating to kinesiology - your products - and will also include enlightening interviews with the top leaders in the field. In every way we will be striving to keep doctors, patients and their suppliers alike on the cutting edge of kinesiology.

In our first issue for example we were excited to have procured an exclusive interview with renowned slalom skier, triple olympic gold medalist, two-time world champion and kinesiology client Deborah Compagnoni from Italy. This encounter was conducted just two weeks before the Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, when she was very busy and could grant very few interviews. At the time of publication a well-known survey picked her as Italy's best-liked and most popular athlete. This is just one example of top rate journalism one can expect inside every issue.
