To find research articles in scholarly journals for psychology, select Social Sciences under Research Databases by Subject on the library services webpage. Use databases containing journal articles such as Psychology Database or Academic Search Premier; limit to scholarly or peer-reviewed journals. Look for headings like Methods, Measures and Procedures, Results, and Discussion in the article to determine if it is describing a research study. You can also find helpful databases with journal articles under the subject: Health, Medicine, and Nursing. Another option is to use the QuickSearch box on the library services webpage which searches multiple databases at once. After typing in your search, limit to Peer-reviewed and Academic journals on the left.
