Library databases are the best starting point when you are looking for scholarly or peer-reviewed articles. These databases contain records of published articles, book chapters, dissertations, or other types of items. Since they are online, you can search them anywhere and at anytime. But remember, if you use them off-campus, you need to login using your SUeID account.
Some databases include full-text articles but others don't. The "link to full-text" icon helps you to trace down the full-text of an article.
The databases listed at the center of this page are commonly used ones for psychology related research.
