Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to find out how sports scientists are disseminating research findings to sport coaches as a first step towards developing better ways of disseminating information in a ‘coach friendly’ manner. It was deemed important to obtain the perspectives of both sport scientists and coaches and also to investigate the role of emerging techniques of dissemination including the World Wide Web. The use of the World Wide Web was of specific interest since these electronic tools provide search and retrieval abilities beyond anything that can be done with paper, even the best papers are of no use if they can not be located.
