Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD) is AAHPERD's largest, most frequently published, and most wide-ranging periodical. It is AAHPERD's cornerstone journal, reaching 12,000+ members and subscribers, providing information on a variety of health, physical education, recreation and dance issues. If you haven't seen JOPERD lately, take a minute to browse through it. AAHPERD's premier journal has undergone some recent changes. JOPERD now has a redesigned, modernized layout and features numerous color photographs.
JOPERD's review process—which has ensured high-quality JOPERD articles for more than 100 years—has become even more rigorous. And technology enables the editors to spend more time working with authors to ensure accurate, timely, and interesting information.
