Key Tools for Identifying Psychology Journal Articles

Interdisciplinary searching of core journals (most will be found immediately as full text):

     Start by searching across a set of approx. 800 interdisciplinary journals using the Academic Search Complete database.


Deeper searches of the psychology literature may be performed in the following tool:

  • Central Index searches articles and books in psychology and related fields.

    • you may find the Advanced Search options helpful for filtering articles by treatment and other facets

    • you may need to use the Borrow From Other Libraries option to request titles we do not own.


Another database that discovers materials using citation patterns and high-impact analysis:

  • Scopus. covers articles in science, mathematics, medicine, technology, and the social sciences.
