Publications (KinPubs), formerly Microform Publications of Human Movement
Studies--is a non-profit component of the International Institute for Sport
and Human Performance (IISHP). KinPubs archives and disseminates graduate
research studies (master's and doctoral dissertations) on microfiche and in
electronic format and is a continuation of the
Education, and Recreation Microfiche Publications issued from 1949-1972
on microcards and from 1973-2002 on microfiche.
KinPubs collects studies from a multifaceted field in which movement or
physical activity is the intellectual focus. This field includes health as it
relates to physical activity, physical fitness, activities of daily living,
work, sport and athletics, recreation, dance, and play. The populations these
studies include are children, adults, and the elderly; individuals with
disabilities, injury or disease; and athletes. The research, which focuses on
the causes and effects of physical activity, employs knowledge and methods of
inquiry from arts and sciences as well as humanities; physiology, biochemistry,
biomechanics, motor control and development, psychology, sociology, sports
medicine, measurement and kinanthropometry, and also pedagogy, history,
philosophy, and, more recently, sports marketing.
Kinesiology Publications is an indexing partner of Sport
Information Resource Centre (SIRC) of Canada, the world's most
authoritative sports information service. There, the authors,
titles, and abstracts of the studies are incorporated into SIRC's

telecommunication networks. The information is also available on
