Psychology: Searching for journal articles

A subject guide for Psychology from Queen Margaret University

Searching for journal articles when you know the title...

When looking for the full-text of an article, you need to search for the journal title first - usually in italics - then the year, volume number, issue number and page numbers.  We subscribe to a large number of journal articles in print as well as eJournals.

TOP TIP: Some people search the eJournals A-Z list first but don't forget the print journals too!  The library catalogue will tell you in the print journal search what years and volume numbers we have for reference use only in the LRC.
