Finding the articles

Journal Abbreviations

How to find an article full-text from a citation

  1. Determine what kind of source it is. Is it a book chapter? A journal article? 
  2. If it is a book, look in the catalog or WorldCat to see if we own it or if you need to Interlibrary Loan it.
  3. If it is an article, use the Journal List to search for the journal title to see which database it is in. If we don't own it, use Find It to request the title. If it's not in a database, use Interlibrary Loan to request the article.


Annotated Bibliographies

Things to look for in articles

Your articles must be original studies. They cannot be metastudies or literature reviews. Don't be afraid to use their bibliographies to help you find more studies.

Remember when you're searching for articles that you'll need to pull them all together for your poster/presentation. Look for similarities in:

  • study participants
  • methodology
  • sport
  • circumstance
