ECU Library increases access to online information for Exercise and Sports Science

ECU Library now subscribes to SPORTDiscus with Full Text providing access to a greater range of online sports science and allied health journal titles, including some that were previously only held in print. Included in these extra titles are “Journal of physical activity & health”, “International SportMed journal”, “Psychophysiology”, “Journal of musculoskeletal research” and “Isokinetics & exercise science”. Online access is now also available to American journal of health promotion, which was previously only held in print. In addition to the full text of academic journals, SPORTDiscus with Full Text also provides access to the full text of a number of magazines, reports, trade publications and some books. Link to other full text articles available via ECU by clicking the FIND IT icon, listed against each reference in the results.
