EXS Exercise Science Research

Finding evidence in the literature means searching for research studies in discipline-specific databases. 

Google can help you find research articles, but if you only use Google you are missing an important step.

Google finds articles using a search algorithm based on popularity and common search terms. It does not find ALL articles in any scholarly journal or discipline. Databases like SPORTDiscus, PubMed, CINAHL, and Medline are comprehensive indexes of the literature relating to Exercise Science

In other words, Google makes the easy part easier. But library databases make the hard part easier!

We're here to help you find the types of articles your instructor wants you to use in your research. Ursuline librarians are database navigation EXPERTS. Schedule an appointment with Kathy Fisher for one-on-one research help.
