Use th
is page to find and search databases for info about articles in journals.
    Google Scholar is at the top of the list, and it's free. It doesn't sort hits, but you can import them directly into a reference manager like Endnote, one at a time. Set up this feature via the Preferences page.
    SPORTDiscus, compiled by EBSCO Information Services covers almost every sport-science publication there has ever been. If your institution doesn't have a subscription, there is a free trial. You may also be able to pay on a per-day basis.
Scopus is the equivalent of Web of Science, published by Elsevier. You need an institutional or personal subscription. It is probably better than Web of Science for sport and exercise science. Elsevier also use their database to produce an annually updated database of journal impact factors. See recent issues of Sportscience for links.
    Web of Science (from the Institute for Scientific Information) is average for accessibility, but it is right up to date, has links to all articles citing a given article, and saves references directly into Endnote. You can access it only if your institution has a subscription, and it doesn't index low-impact sport-science journals.
    PubMed from the US National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health is primarily for medical research, but it contains many sport-science journals.
