Sports Management Library Guide: Journals

A guide to resources for Sport Management.

Finding Journals by title or ISSN

You perform a Journal Search in Primo to find if we subscribe to a particular journal title. Primo should also list any titles we subscribe to either in print or electronically. 

 

Print Journals

Use Primo to get shelf numbers for print journals. Printed journals are housed in two areas. The latest issues of journal are kept on level 5 in the Research Wing. Older journals are kept on levels 2 and 3 below Interlibrary Loans, down the spiral staircase.

 

Journal Articles

The library’s journal databases are particularly helpful for finding information. Journal articles are short and cover very specific topics, so they are more digestible than books and more likely to deal exactly with your topic. They are also quicker to publish than books and so are more likely to be up to date.

Databases can be accessed either by alphabetical list or databases by platform. The following databases are good sources for information on Sport Management. You can also search a large range of these databases together using Primo.
