Databases

Although PsycINFO is the American Psychological Association (APA) database, and is considered the primary database for psychology research, you may want to search additional databases depending on your topic.  

  • Search SocINDEX for topics that deal with social psychology, and marriage and family.
  • Search Academic Search Complete for topics that deal with mental health counseling
  • Search Web of Science (which includes MEDLINE) for neuroscience or neuropharmacological topics.

Two other databases that can be helpful for certain topics:

  • PsycTests provides access to actual test instruments, most of which are available for immediate download and use in teaching and research
  • PsycBOOKS provides the full text of all the books published by the APA 

Complete list of databases that may have resources relevant to your research topic.
