The premier database from the APA. Contains articles and book chapters from the biggest journals and publishers in the field by subject. Most effective when searching by APA subject terms (see Using a Search Thesaurus below).
To be used in conjunction with PsycINFO. Does not provide the same breadth of psychological literature, but is a good tool for testing out keywords and search phrases. Also good for cited reference searching.
Using a Search Thesaurus
Using a thesaurus when searching in a database can help you retrieve articles on a particular topic without knowing all the different terms used by scholars to describe that topic. This video demonstrates the use of the Thesaurus in PsycINFO, but this feature exists in all ProQuest databases, including ERIC.
