Article Sources - Best Bets for Psychology Students - LSSU

  • PsycInfo (On Campus Link)
    PsycINFO provides access to international literature in psychology and related disciplines. Unrivaled in its depth of psychological coverage and respected worldwide for its high quality, the database is enriched with literature from an array of disciplines related to psychology such as psychiatry, education, business, medicine, nursing, pharmacology, law, linguistics, and social work. Nearly all records contain non-evaluative summaries, and all records from 1967 to the present are indexed using the Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms.

  • Social Science Abstracts (On Campus Link)
    Social Sciences Abstracts provides access to a wide assortment of the most important English-language journals published in the U.S. and elsewhere, with abstracting and indexing of over 625 periodicals as far back as 1983, nearly 400 of which are peer-reviewed. Social Sciences Abstracts™ covers the latest concepts, trends, opinions, theories and methods from both applied and theoretical aspects of the social sciences.

  • Google Scholar
    Search for scholarly materials such as scholarly articles, books, research reports, theses, working papers, and cited sources.

  • JSTOR (On Campus Link)
    Think of JStor as Journal Storage. It is a large collection of research materials, with indexing, abstracts, and full-text covering a variety of academic disciplines. The material in JStor is all 3-5 years old or older. We recommend that you type your search terms in the title or abstract search boxes, rather than the full-text search box. If your terms pull up materials from the title or abstract of the item, the major discussion throughout the article should be your topic. If your terms are found by searching the full-text box, the article may only mention your topic briefly.

  • JOVE - Essentials of Neuroscience (On Campus Link)
    JoVE’s fifth Science Education collection provides an introduction to the field of neuroscience. These videos offer a glimpse of neuroscience at the professional level, through an exploration of five major branches of study: neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, cell and molecular neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, and developmental neuroscience. In addition to presenting the key questions asked by scientists from these subfields, the collection describes some prominent methods used by today’s most brainy researchers, while making exciting discoveries regarding nervous system function.
