About the Journal

The Brazilian Journal of Motor Behavior (BJMB) is a publication of the Brazilian Society of Motor Behavior (Sociedade Brasileira de Comportamento Motor - SOCIBRACOM) since 2006. BJMB is a free-of-charge, quarterly, peer-reviewed, and open-access journal. It is an arbitrated journal that uses an external review system by peers who have knowledge of the objects investigated and the methodologies used in the research.

The BJMB accepts original contributions pertaining to the multidisciplinary study of human movement throughout the lifespan, involving a broad range of topics related to the field of Motor Behavior like motor control, development and learning, movement disorders, clinical, theoretical and model studies. These articles could come from diverse disciplines such as kinesiology, biomechanics, neurophysiology, neuroscience, psychology, medicine, sports performance, and rehabilitation. 

The BJMB [ISSN: 2446-4902 (online version)] is published using the Open Journal System (OJS) technology to improve the speed, efficiency, quality, fairness, and impact of scientific publishing. The submitted manuscript must be original, unpublished, and not be under consideration by any other journal for publication. The authors are the only party responsible for assertions made in their articles. 

BJMB only publishes manuscripts in English.

There is NO charge or fee to publish in BJMB.

The first review of the paper will be taken in a maximum of 30 days after submission.

Special issue on the Effects of aging on locomotor patterns


This special issue aims to organize scientific evidence on how healthy aging and age-related diseases affect locomotion in different contexts. Locomotion here is supposed to cover mobility performance, walking capacity, and different measures of gait (e.g., gait stability, variability, kinematics, muscle activation, synergies, and cortical activation). We also encourage studies verifying task paradigms, multidimensional correlational gait studies, interventions focusing on gait rehabilitation and falls, and discussions of different levels of gait analysis in aging and age-related diseases.
