The author decided to have some fun reviewing the SPORTDiscus with Full Text database and use sports terminology to help you understand what you are "playing" with when you use it for research purposes. According to its producer, EBSCO Publishing, SPORTDiscus with Full Text is the world's most comprehensive source of full text for sports & sports medicine journals, providing full text for more than 520 journals indexed in SPORTDiscus. Of those, 372 are not found with full text in any version of Academic Search, Health Source, or Biomedical Reference Collection. To determine if this is a good starting lineup for your sports research, you need to understand the full roster of the database since EBSCO's description only mentions journals. When it comes to full text, the oldest entry is the 1930 journal entry. Full text accounts for 59% of the titles, with 8% peer reviewed.
