Professional Development – Periodicals & Journals


Some of you have asked me to list the journals and periodicals I read for my professional development. The ones in bold italics are the one’s I subscribe to. The others I try to read regularly or at least read the abstracts to see if there is anything of interest. Right now I am behind. When that happens I usually take a weekend day and get caught up in a big chunk. The availability of abstracts through Google Scholar and Pub Med has been a big help. For those if you at a college, university or sports institute you should be able to access the full journals at no cost. I envy you. In November when I go to Australia again I am going to try to go to the AIS Library in Canberra. I think that is the best resource center in the work. I am going to try to block out a day there.
