Encyclopedia of Sports Medicine and Science 

Sportscience Homepage 

     This encyclopedia was originally to be edited by Tom Fahey and published in book form. When publication fell through, the Sportscience team agreed to publish the encyclopedia here. Soon thereafter Tom opted out of the project, and most authors did not want to revise their manuscripts for publication at this site. By this stage the articles were 4-5 years old, so we did not edit and publish them. The only articles that were revised appear below and in the frame on the left. Check Unpublished Articles for the list of articles that were not updated and for information about accessing them. For more information about the Encyclopedia, link to an earlier article in Sportscience News.
