Finding Journal Literature

Additional E-Journals

These are just a few of the relevant AT and sports medicine journals from the OhioLINK databases.

MEDLINE, PubMed, and PMC (PubMed Central)

Additional Databases for AT481

Here are other complementary databases for Athletic Training research.  Your topic will determine your database selections.

Quoting, Paraphrasing and Summarizing

Sometimes students don't realize that all sources, not only those that contain a direct quote, need to be cited properly.  This website from the OWL at Purdue (Online Writing Lab) can help you distinguish between a paraphrase, a summary and a direct quote.

Interlibrary Loan

Make an Interlibrary Loan request when the journal article you are seeking is not available in free-to-you fulltext.  Always consult a librarian before making a request, since we may be able to locate the full-text for you.   

Because the ILL process may take a couple of weeks, do plan ahead.  Request only articles that promise to deliver quality information.
