Resource focus: SportDISCUS


Hands up who made it their New Year’s resolution to take up a sport and get fit? At the start of 2016 I made this my resolution and amazingly I’ve stuck to it. If you’d have told me 20 years ago that I would feel cross that my gym closes at 8 p.m. on a weekend I’d have laughed at you…

Anyway, if you are studying sports sciences (as opposed to someone like me!), there is one database you simply cannot do without: SportDISCUS. This is a hugely important full-text resource for anyone studying sports and sports medicine. Containing over 150,000 articles from over 600 journals, this database covers health education, coaching, fitness, physical therapy and sports sciences to name a few topics. SportDISCUS is very easy to search so do take a look if you are studying sports-related topics.
