In the last editorial we demanded the existance of a knowledge which would be of use to such a fundamental interest of the individuals like health, and we manisfested the compromise of this magazine with the intellectual production publication following the path towards that objective.

The mere fact of putting the sportsman’s health before the competitive performance and the comercial or political interests, is already a matter of values which points towards the call for a reflection and an ethical commitment. As a matter of fact, this approach is nothing but a more general and common concretion between scientifics when they ask themselves about what they are researching and why. However, intellectual production has other requirements and commitments that lead us to talk about ethics strictly about knowledge.
