Physical Education, Sport & Exercise Sciences: Journals & Databases

Keyword-only & citation databases

These databases can only be searched using keywords (author words).

If you find a great article on your topic, you can use these citation databases to track down articles that cite that particular article. 

Key subject headings databases

These databases can use Subject Headings (e.g. MeSH, Emtree) to assist your searching. They can also be searched with keywords.

Other relevant databases

Article databases list and classify articles from scholarly publications, primarily peer-reviewed journals. Different databases cover different ranges of publications, depending on their subject matter and the scope of the database. Databases link through to the Library's e-journals collections for full article access wherever possible.
