General Research Databases

The general research databases can provide an excellent starting point, but don't forget to check discipline-specific databases as well! 

Gale PowerSearch provides access to journal and magazine articles, reference articles, multimedia, and primary source information. When searching in PowerSearch check out the Topic Finder function to discover additional keywords. 

Google Scholar

Search for articles in Google Scholar. You can also find the link on the library homepage. GoogleScholar is connected to the library databases, so an article might be availabe full-text from our library if you see the link "Find it at Framingham" within the search results.

How do I search in PsycINFO for articles that contain appended psychological tests?

Here are instructions from EBSCO:

"To locate articles that contain appended tests, add TM Appended to your search terms.

To limit to a particular published test (as mentioned in the “Tests and Measures” field), perform your search in the following way: TM Appended and TM “published test name”

For example, enter: TM Appended and TM Apperceptive Personality Test

This retrieves results for Apperceptive Personality Test(s) and limits to those that are appended."
