New Studies in Athletics


In 1984 the IAAF Council appointed a scientific working group with the specific task of producing a journal emphasising the technical aspects of athletics. In the following year during the Council Meeting in Athens (1985), it was decided to publish the magazine under the name “New Studies in Athletics”. The first issue was published in 1986. 

Among the existing technical publications, NSA has established itself as a much respected international journal and illustrates the importance the IAAF attaches to scientific and coaching information.

Most of the articles published have been original contributions and provide a valuable source of information for coaches combining the scientific theory, such as biomechanics, with the practical application.

This high level of information comes with an excellent standard of production. NSA is an attractively designed publication with an impressive selection of quality coloured photographs. An essential publication in the coaching world designed with coaches in mind.
