PSYC 200 Introduction to Psychology: Finding Articles

A general introduction to the study of the science of psychology

Getting Started

These comprehensive databases contain articles on psychology topics.

Psychology Databases

Empirical Studies

To find articles that report on empirical research, some keywords you might want to use could be:

population, study, results, discussion, data, variables, limitations, implications, survey, respondents, or conclusion.

Such terms should be searched as keywords rather than subject terms because they reflect the kind of language used in an article describing empirical research, but they are not the topic or subject of the study.
