Psychology Journal Article Resource Guide

The psychology journal article is the essential document for several study tasks. And the more specific or narrow the topic of study, the more precious the psychology journal article. So where do you begin, for your own paper or research in psychology, sociology, or many other science branches?

Begin with the major indexes, those databases that have directed, dated (or updated) sources and resources and internationally published and professional psychology journal articles. These indexes typically include APA, NIMH, and other renowned journals; and the journal-finding sites are, for example, as follows:

PubMed—pubmed.gov

PSYCLINE--psycline.org/journals/psycline.html

Hanover College Psych Dept Journals ---

psych.hanover.edu/Krantz/ journal.html

Oxford Journals--http://ei.oxfordjournals.org

The Worldwide Web Virtual Library Psychology Journals
--http://www.dialogical.net/psychology/journals.html

You can access most if not all of these and several more indexes through your college or local library, both of which usually also have a number of back issues of the journals with the psychology journal articles you are looking for. In the county where I am from, for example, the community colleges offer ProQuest Psychology Journals, InfoTrak Expanded Academic ASAP, and links to Psychology Journals’ Websites, among other access/search engines.

In several cases, however, you can access the journal article online and off-campus can download and print it, too. Some cost a few dollars, and some are free.

Once you get to an index you like, you will want to look first for the psychology journal. Make sure it will render 1) a literature review; 2) methods; 3) results; 4) discussion; and 5) data [according to Skyline College librarian suggestions]. And once you get to the specific journal, to search for a psychology journal article, look for complete articles by clicking on the “full text” option. When you get a list of psychology journal articles, you can click on the title, then click on the “get article,” “download,” or “print” options.
