PSYC 2205 - M. Oja: Find Articles

Library guide for PSYC 2205

Finding Articles in Databases

Using the keywords you identified when brainstorming your topic, search for scholarly, scientific articles in the Taft College Library databases. Databases use an internet connection, but you are not searching the World Wide Web. You are searching for sources that are only available to you as a Taft College student. If you are not familiar with using databases, check out What is a database and how do I use it? For step-by-step instructions on searching in databases, Database Tutorials may help you with your searching.

Articles come in a variety of types: Audio files, newspapers, magazines, and journal articles. Types of Sources can help you identify what makes each type of source different and when it is appropriate to use a particular source. The Scholarly Peer Reviewed Journals guide provides a quick overview of how a scholarly article is formatted.

The following databases include primary sources on a variety of topics. The most appropriate databases for scientific research include Academic OneFile, Academic Search Complete, Ethnic Diversity Source, Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition, MEDLINE, Military & Government Collection, PsycARTICLES, and Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection.

You can search all of the EBSCOhost databases (all of the above except Academic OneFile) at once using the ALL EBSCOhost Database link below
