Psychology Research

This LibGuide will help you write a paper on your topic.

Questions to ask when researching disease information:

1. What do I need to know? An overview usually contains description or definition and provides leads for further research.

2. When was the information written? The field changes quickly.  Note the publication date. If necessary, scan recent articles to see if there are updates.

3. How in depth need I go? Your professor may ask for clinical information. In that case, a consumer health web site will not be appropriate - look for resources geared toward the psychology professional if you are asked to provide more detailed information.

4. Use appropriate search terms, depending if you are looking for clinician or consumer information. For detailed information, use clinical terms - such as generalized anxiety disorder instead of the less specific term anxiety
