Most Relevant Databases

These two databases are two good places to start. 

  • SPORTDiscus with Full Text  
    Comprehensive source of full text for sports & sports medicine journals. (Not every journal has full-text access.)
    You can search it and Academic Search Complete at the same time.
  • Physical Education Index  
    Contains scholarly and trade literature in the field of physical education.
    Good place to start to see if your topic has been researched and developed in your field, BUT only has LINKS to FULL-TEXT.

Other Helpful Databases

  • ScienceDirect  
    Completely full-text database with good coverage of physical education, exercise science, and related topics.
  • Academic OneFile  
    Similiar to Academic Search Complete but has full-text articles that are not available elsewhere.

Medical-related Databases

These two databases work well for searches about throwing balls, velocity, body weight and composition, as well as other topics related to anatomy and physiology.

  • MEDLINE with Full Text  
    (Commonly used by doctors and other medical professionals) but has much related to sports medicine and injuries.
  • CINAHL Plus with Full Text  
    Commonly used by nurses but has good sports medicine and injury articles.
  • Journal Abbreviations
    Use this link when you only have the abbreviation to the title, such as what you often get in Medline or in a list of references at the end of an article.

Education-related Databases

These databases work well for education topics as well as issues of sports psychology and its relation to school sports.   Use the Education resources page for additional information.
