We have many ebooks for Health Promotion topics also.
Nearly all items with call numbers starting with R will be located on the third floor of the Belk Library.
APPsearch, on our main page, is useful for many searches. It will search most of the databases listed below.
For most important health problems, there should be a recent systematic review of all studies. Try including the phrase "systematic review" or just "review" in your search.
Our Find@ASU button in our article databases takes you to electronic full text, if we have it.
Still not getting full text? Many full text articles are available for free in some form. If you have a distinct article title or a DOI, try a quick search in Google Scholar (and Google). We also have ILLiad to get articles from other libraries. NEW -- Try Unpaywall.
Helps with creating an answerable, useful question. Helps with choice of search words.
Problem or population -- soccer players
Intervention -- preventive training (or more specific type of preventive training)
Comparison treatment (or placebo) -- alternate type of preventive training? what's being used up to now.
Outcome -- count frequency and severity of injuries. Missed games or training.
Living with APA
You're using ILLiad, interlibrary loan, right? ILLIad will get you articles from other libraries, in cases when AppState does not subscribe and there is no free (post-peer reviewed) version available.
Your ILLiad password is now your AppState password, the same one you use for AppalNet, AsULearn, and other library access.
Most of our books (physical books!) on public health are on the third floor, in the RA sections. See for example, these Catalog search results for recent public health books. (This smaller set of ebooks looks interesting also!)
I'm also pleased to see the latest issue of the American Journal of Public Health has a focus on public health response to emergencies. It includes an article by Erin Bouldin and Jennifer Schroeder, a local public health practitioner. Everything in this issue appears to be open access.
Of course, be skeptical of all ranking systems.
You might also refer to Cabell's Directories of Publishing Opportunities (covers some disciplines: Nursing, Health Administration) and UlrichsWeb for information that might be useful. For open access journals, check if they are listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals. You might also search WorldCat to see how many libraries say they have a journal.
Contact me if you would like to discuss this or need help using the resources. We have a library guide about Scholarly Communication, including topics such as measuring impact.
