Dr. Kozinc:

Dear Readers,

I am delighted to join the editorial board of EQOL as a newly appointed member. My name is Žiga Kozinc and I am an assistant professor at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Primorska, Slovenia. My research and teaching activities are focused on sports biomechanics, physical therapy and musculoskeletal injuries.

For the June special issue, the journal is focusing on Sports Injuries. We believe this is a critical area to research, especially in light of potential relationship between injuries and quality of life of athletes and recreationally active individuals. As this is one of my fields of expertise, I would like to invite you to contribute a paper. We will welcome original and review papers on risk factors, prevention and rehabilitation of sports injuries.

I am looking forward to your valuable contributions.


Best regards,

Žiga Kozinc and Damjan Jakšić
