Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Public health

His scientific interests lie mostly in Gerontology, Environmental health, Physical fitness, Public health and Physical therapy. He has researched Gerontology in several fields, including Psychological intervention, Obesity, Epidemiology, Health promotion and Physical exercise. His work deals with themes such as Physical education and Health education, which intersect with Health promotion.

His Physical exercise research includes elements of El Niño and Demography. His Environmental health study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Walkability, Built environment, Recreation and Urban planning. The concepts of his Physical therapy study are interwoven with issues in Sedentary behavior, Clinical psychology and Reliability.

His most cited work include:

  • International physical activity questionnaire: 12-country reliability and validity (10233 citations)
  • Physical Activity and Public Health: A Recommendation From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine (6534 citations)
  • A review of correlates of physical activity of children and adolescents. (3438 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Gerontology, Environmental health, Demography, Physical therapy and Built environment are his primary areas of study. His Gerontology research incorporates themes from Psychological intervention, Body mass index, Obesity and Public health, Health promotion. He has included themes like Psychosocial and Behavior change in his Psychological intervention study.

His research in Environmental health intersects with topics in Cross-sectional study and Recreation. In his work, Randomized controlled trial is strongly intertwined with Intervention, which is a subfield of Physical therapy. James F. Sallis specializes in Built environment, namely Walkability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gerontology (29.25%)
  • Environmental health (21.67%)
  • Demography (16.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Walkability (15.71%)
  • Built environment (15.93%)
  • Environmental health (21.67%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

James F. Sallis mainly investigates Walkability, Built environment, Environmental health, Demography and Gerontology. His Walkability research integrates issues from Reliability, Socioeconomic status, Obesity and Scale. As a member of one scientific family, James F. Sallis mostly works in the field of Environmental health, focusing on Public transport and, on occasion, Urban planning and Environmental planning.

The Demography study which covers Mean age that intersects with Neighborhood walkability. His studies in Gerontology integrate themes in fields like Intervention and Public health, Health promotion. In his study, Behavior change, Anthropometry and Physical therapy is inextricably linked to Psychological intervention, which falls within the broad field of Intervention.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Physical activity in relation to urban environments in 14 cities worldwide: a cross-sectional study (465 citations)
  • Progress in physical activity over the Olympic quadrennium (396 citations)
  • City planning and population health: a global challenge (389 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Public health

His primary areas of study are Walkability, Environmental health, Built environment, Gerontology and Demography. The study incorporates disciplines such as Socioeconomic status and Scale in addition to Walkability. His Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as Environmental protection, Moderation, Recreation, Public health and Poverty.

His Public health research includes themes of Psychological intervention and Urban planning. His Built environment study incorporates themes from Regression analysis, Observational study and Pedestrian. His Gerontology research incorporates elements of Body mass index, Motor activity, Cross-sectional study, Sedentary behavior and Child Nutritional Physiological Phenomena.
