PSY 250: Home

This guide will serve as a refresher for your instruction in finding scholarly articles for your Abnormal Psychology paper


Welcome to LibGuide created to help you find scholarly articles in the area of psychology for your research paper. You will use a database, which is basically a subject index to articles within a discipline, and many will provide you with the full text of the article. If full text is not available in the database you are using or one of the others that are available through our website, we can try to find the article in paper copy or order it through interlibrary loan for you.

Finding a scholarly article

What is a scholarly article?

Professors often require that students include articles from scholarly or peer-reviewed journals as resources for their research papers. These articles are authored by experts in their fields and reviewed by their peers before being accepted for publication. The level of scholarship is high above what we might find in a news magazine.
