Every article accessed through the Library subscription databases, including Academic Search Complete and PsycARTICLES, provides a detailed record. This information contains general information such as author name(s), original source information (where and when the article was published, including volume, issue, and page numbers), and an article abstract (summary).

  • location (where study was conducted)
  • age group (of subjects researched)
  • tests & measures (how data was collected & assessed)
