Psychology: Databases

Starting points for research

Databases are useful resources to search for good quality subject-specific research and find journal articles on a topic. Here are some useful subject databases. Unless otherwise specified, you will need your Single Sign On username and password (the same as for MyDMU and email) to access them within and outside the university.

Further research

These are some more databases that you may find useful in your research. Some have broad coverage of the social sciences, some on science, and some on health. Further information on coverage is provided with each database.

Useful Journals by Subject

Each link takes you to the publication finder, from where you need to select a link under 'Full text access'.

To find all journals, use the Publication Finder (available from the library homepage under the search bar)

Why use journals?



Use journals to find:

  • useful information, research and discussions
  • different view points from different authors
  • current information as journals are published quicker than books.
