Psychology Databases

Tips for Using PsycINFO & PsycARTICLES
  • Use each database separately. If you don’t, you won’t get all the books from PsycInfo. Each database has slightly different limiters

  • Use full text, date and peer review limiters

  • Check any specific Source Type (articles, books, etc)

  • Choose drop-down lists for Publication (you can choose specific journals) Classification and Methodology (“empirical study”) to find other useful ways to narrow your search

  • PsycArticles is scholarly articles only

  • PsycINFO has books, dissertations, etc
