ProQuest’s Physical Education Index (PEI) is a citation database comprising records from peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed sources that focus on exercise physiology and physical education. The migration from CSA to ProQuest’s platform in 2011 resulted in an improved search interface; other features such as interactive search help links and Altmetrics also enhance the searching experience. The PEI has not improved much in terms of content and quality control from when it was hosted on CSA’s platform. In addition, the thesaurus is outdated and it is clearly evident the existing lexicon does not reflect the changes in the discipline that have occurred during the past decade. Despite other issues such as missing content and Altmetrics that may or may not be present in citations with a strong online presence, this resource is recommended for generalists, secondary school, and undergraduate populations. It is also recommended for those interested in applied exercise physiology and physical education such as coaches and educators.
