Kinesiology and Exercise & Sport Studies: Subject Guide: Articles

Find information about the areas of Kinesiology and Exercise & Sports Studies.

Where to Find Scholarly Sources

Because these are topics that cross multiple disciplines or explore problems from multiple disciplinary perspectives, I have listed databases in the  the social sciences and health sciences. Though academic journal articles covering these issues can be found in resources  from virtually all subject areas,  the databases (general and specialized) below are some of the best places to start for your topic(s). The Smith Library Center subscribes to various databases that, when searched, will yield many articles and essays on your topic.  Articles are constantly added to these databases.  A keyword search (concepts/phrases) will yield many academic articles.

Tip: When you view a full record for an article, read the abstract, or summary, to quickly ascertain if it is relevant to your research. 

Worldcat@SU has the ability to search for books, audiovisual materials, and journals as well as for articles in our most popular, multi-disciplinary databases (Academic Search Complete, JSTOR, and Project Muse).

Already have a citation?  The quickest way to find  the article title is to type the full title in the single search box on SU's Library Homepage. WorldCat will search multiple databases at the same time, presenting you with the article title. 

Example:  "Ankle Injuries in basketball: injury rate and risk factors".  In British Journal of Sports Medicine, April 2001.

TiP:  Enclose article title in parentheses.


For items we don't own, our library can either borrow the item from another library or purchase it for the collection.
