Psychology: A Guide to McFarlin Library Resources: Articles

Finding Articles

Journal articles are vital sources of information when you're doing academic research on almost any topic, including psychology and related disciplines.  Most serious researchers publish the results of their work in scholarly, peer-reviewed, professional journals.

To identify and locate published, scholarly materials relevant to your current research project you will need to use a particular type of database called an index.  Indexes can be subject-specific for in-depth research or can be more general in nature.  All indexes provide a citation, many provide an abstract, and a few provide the full text of the article. 

If the article is not available in full text in the index, you must use the library's Journal Titles database (use the search box below) to find out if McFarlin Library subscribes to the journal that published the article you need. If McFarlin Library does not subscribe to the journal you need, you may request it through interlibrary loan
