PSY 225 - Research Methods in Psychology: Find Scholarly Articles

What Are Databases?

Finding a Full-Text Journal Article

Some of our databases provide full-text articles (indicated by a PDF or HTML link after the citation).  Others only show you the titles of articles.  For these, click Article Linker to find out whether we own the journal in print and/or online.

If we do not have access to the article you need, you can request it (free of charge).  After logging into your InterLibrary Loan account, the system will automatically fill out the necessary information - you just need to hit Submit Request at the bottom of the page!

Database Tips

Remember these search tips:

  • Search by subject or thesaurus term, not just by keyword.
  • Use synonyms for your search words if you aren't finding results.
  • Limit your results to those in English and to peer-reviewed (scholarly) articles.
  • You can limit by year if you have too many results.
