SPORTDiscus [with Full Text] is a hidden jewel of the EBSCO databases. It balances coverage for both Allied Health and Sport Management majors. Our Allied Health students need scholarly evidence based research and find SPORTDiscus much more user friendly and relevant than PubMed. Our undergraduate and graduate students in sport management find SPORTDiscus helpful for both scholarly and popular material. Some topics such as concussions, are covered from a medical, popular, as well as coaching view. 5 stars.
