KIN 310: Psychological Bases of Physical Activity: Not sure if your Journal Article is considered Academic/Scholarly or Peer-reviewed?

Psychological factors affecting motor skill acquisition and performance. Psychological skills which enhance sport performance. Applications of learning theory.

The easiest way to locate a journal is to search the MSU libraries' online catalog

You can check to see if the journal your article is from is Academic/Scholarly and/or Peer-reviewed by using the Index - Ulrichsweb.com, (Remember there are only 5 simultaneous users, so if you can't access the index try again later).

From the library's home page, http://lib.msu.edu click on E-Resources under Quick Links. Under Find Other E-Resources, type in Ulrichsweb and click the GO button.

Then click the Ulrichsweb.com link. Or just click the title link above.

Under "Quick Search" choose "Title" then enter the title of the journal (NOT the title of the article) into the box. Click the "Submit" button.

On the "Search Results" page click on the title of the journal.

Under the heading Document type: it should have Academic/Scholarly.

Under Refereed: it should have Yes.

If a journal is not peer-reviewed it will not have the heading Refereed at all.
