ClinicalTrials.gov is a registry and results database of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. ClinicalTrials.gov gives you information about a trial's purpose, who may participate, locations, and phone numbers for more details. This information should be used in conjunction with advice from health care professionals.
There are a variety of types of resources you can use in order to locate relevant research material. Determine what type of research (books, articles, reviews, case studies, videos) you require and then search the appropriate resource (databases or the DELCAT Discovery). Depending upon your research topic, it may be necessary for you to look in resources that are not kinesiology specific, but rather more general health or science based databases.
Use these databases to locate articles and other resources relevant for KAP topics.
