      • Plan for a systematic and comprehensive search
      • Understand and use the electronic databases to find out what sports literature has been published in the academic journals
      • Identify and access the available journals
    • 3. What is a Database?
      • Most databases provide bibliographic details of data published in professional journals including.…
      • - The Author and Title of an article
      • - The Journal in which it is printed
      • - The Volume, Part and Page Numbers of the article
      • - The Abstract, a brief summary of the article
      • - Subject Keywords
      In some cases there will be a link providing access to the full text and/or information regarding the Library’s print holdings
    • 4. When you find an article This is what the “citation” looks like
    • 5. The “complete reference”
    • 6. The “full text”
    • 7. Evaluation
      • It is very important to evaluate your search results for relevance and quality
      • Is it what you need and is it trustworthy?
      • Do NOT trust information if you have not considered the following criteria:
    • 8.
      • C urrency (How old is this information? When was it last updated?)
      • A uthority (Who is the author, site creator, organisation etc?)
      • I ntent (What is the purpose of the website / information? e.g. financial gain etc)
      • R elevance (Is this what I need? Will it answer my question?)
      • O bjectivity (Balanced view? Opposing views represented? etc)
      Evaluation
    • 9. Peer Review
      • Peer review is a core part of academic research.  It is a formal procedure for checking the quality of research before it is published.  
      • If a publication is peer reviewed it means it has been read, checked and authenticated (reviewed) by independent, third party academics (peers).
      • Peer review has been the quality-control system of academic publishing for hundreds of years.
    • 10. Useful Databases For Full Text Journal Articles
      • Science Direct
      • OVID Journals
      • PubMed Central
    • 11. Plan Your Database Search
      • 1. Define your question
      • Break it down into concepts (databases work best if you break your question down into single subjects)
      • 3. List the words or phrases that you could use for each concept (alternative terms, truncation using * etc)
    • 12. Plan Your Database Search
      • The following resources should help with this process:
      • - Examples of high quality systematic literature reviews (Cochrane Library) http://libguides.mdx.ac.uk/content.php?pid=40637&sid=360597
