Library sources for PSY 301.


By far the best database for finding articles, dissertations, and book chapters in the field of psychology is PsycINFO. This is a very powerful database that provides abstracts and citations to the scholarly literature in the field of behavioral sciences and mental health. It contains nearly 3 million references of peer-reviewed literature from the early 1800s to the present.

It has many search options provided for focusing on the precise nature of the information you are looking for. You can define by publication type, age group, population group, document type, methodology, and now tests and measures, to name a few.

Additionally, there is a Term Finder to help you find the most specific and descriptive subject terms to use

Because this is not a full-text database, use the Find It@OSU  button to search for the resource in our catalog, ejournals, and other databases.
