I have a whole list of about 20 dance, dance medicine, and athletic medicine journals. I am really interested in some of the dance medicine journals, however I don't know which ones are very good. Has anyone ever read any dance or dance medicine journals? Which ones are valuable? Thanks in advance,

A lot of this answer will have to depend on your degree of medical sophistication. Many of these journals are written by physicians FOR physicians, and the lay person or student will simply be left there dragging her/his jaw on the ground.

I am very interested in the medical aspect and find articles like that very interesting. I think I will just go to the university's library and look at all of them. Thanks,

What is the list of these journals? I'm currently in an independent study class and am trying to gather as much information as I can.


I would prefer the peer-reviewed journals, please


Thanks!!! :flowers:

Here are the lists, but I know that there are many many more out there. And I'm sure a lot of these aren't any good or might not be what you are looking for. If you want to look yourself, just type in dance medicine journals or sports medicine journals in a search engine. Also what I have done is looked in the bibliography of my dance, dance medicine, and sports medicine books - that way I know that they are good sources. I will put a star by the ones that I know for sure are good, but I'm sure there are many others, as I have not had time to go to a library and check out a lot of these journals. (By the way, I don't know which ones are peer reviewed. :thumbsup: ) May I ask what your independent study is and what college this is at? I am really interested in a career in dance medicine and physical therapy and am looking at colleges and programs.

My independent study topic for this semester is choreography. Next semester is artistic management. This is a high school program, however. :cool2: Sorry if that doesn't help you find a college program.


Thank you for the journals though!!! :sweating:

I receive the Journal for Dance Medicine and Science. I love it, but my major complaint is that it only comes quaterly.


Most of the sports medicine journals do not spend a lot of time on dance. I have, however, seen several articles on dance in Physician and Sportsmedicine. In addition, they often mention dancers in general articles about various injuries. They have a web page, I think it it physsportsmed.com, but I'll look it up at work tomorrow.


aly15girl-what a comprehensive list! You've done a much better search than I have.
