Hello and welcome to SURF,

The new Sport Information Portal provided by the Federal Institute of Sport Science (Bundesinstitut für Sportwissenschaft / BISp) free of charge.

With only one search request you get the relevant information from all four BISp databases:

SPOLIT (publications), SPOFOR (projects), SPOMEDIA (audio-visual media) and the “Fachinfoführer Sport” (internet resources).

In addition, you can search other external data collections at the same time to complete your results list.

The supply of external sources will be gradually expanded.

Our service is completed by numerous filter options for the refinement of your search results, various export formats and a SDI service as well as a reporting tool for announcing information not yet listed in SURF. If you would like to find out more about the new system, you will find further information here.

We are very interested in your opinion. In case you have any comments, suggestions or questions regarding SURF or if there is a feature that might improve our product, please feel free to contact us at any time.
