An award of editorial excellence was recently given to Taylor’s very own Dawn Anderson.
Anderson, professor of kinesiology at Taylor, received The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research (JSCR) Editorial Excellence Award during the 42nd Annual NSCA National Conference in Washington, D.C.
The journal, which devotes itself to helping others maximize their physical strength by supporting strength and conditioning professors like Anderson, consists of over 45,000 members.
Anderson received a PhD in Human Bioenergetics from Ball State University and specializes in martial arts training, gender differences and nutrition and body composition assessment methods, and currently teaches kinesiology, the study of body movement.
In addition to being a professor at Taylor, Anderson is also a senior associate editor for The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research (JSCR). She also serves as a member of the Research Committee for the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and works as a scientific adviser on the International Society of Sports Nutrition advisory board.
Andseron is one of two recipients, along with Rhodri S. Lloyd from Cardiff Metropolitan University. Recipients are picked annually from members of the editorial board. Qualifications for this award come from overall contribution to the editing process throughout the previous year.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research for my service as one of the Senior Associate Editors,” Anderson wrote. “The Journal is the premier publication for our field and the work has been both challenging and rewarding. It is a blessing to serve with some of the best minds in our field and to share their insight with my colleagues at Taylor.”
Dr. Nicholas Ratamess, JSCR Editor-in-Chief, has also been impressed with the works of Anderson and Lloyd.
“It is only with extraordinary efforts of the JSCR Editorial Board that this journal is possible,” Ratamess said. “Dr. Anderson and Dr. Lloyd have demonstrated a commitment to editorial excellence and their exceptional hard work and dedication have greatly contributed to the journal’s success.”
The JSCR is the primary publication of the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
“The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research (JSCR) is a monthly publication that provides original research, symposia, reviews, technical reports, and research notes to provide educational content with a mission to advance the strength and conditioning industry,” the NSCA wrote.
As an organization, the National Strength and Conditioning Association is tasked with advancing the strength and conditioning profession around the world.
“The NSCA advances the profession by supporting strength and conditioning professionals devoted to helping others discover and maximize their strengths,” the NSCA wrote on their website. “We disseminate research-based knowledge and its practical application by offering industry-leading certifications, research journals, career development services, and continuing education opportunities.”
