Psychology for Middletown: Finding Articles

Connecting From Off-Campus

You will need to know your 7-digit College ID to connect to most of our resources from off-campus.

Not sure what your ID number is? Go to MYCSTATE & use the link for "Look Up Username/Reset Your Cincinnati State Password" to retrieve it. Watch our "Looking Up Your College ID" video for more instructions.

Library Databases for Psychology Research

Below are a few databases you can use to get started on your research. Find more on our Databases A-Z page.

Search Tips

“And”, “Or”, “Not”(Boolean Operators): Use the words to narrow or expand your search results. For Example:
 

  • “ADHD” AND “children” will return results that contain BOTH of the terms.
  • ”ADHD” OR “attention deficit” OR “hyperactivity disorder” will return results that contain at least one of the terms. Useful for words with similar meanings.
  • ”cinderella” NOT “rock band” will return results that do NOT include the 1980’s rock band, Cinderella.

Truncate using the asterisk (hold the Shift key & the 8 key at the same time) to get results that include all possible endings of a root word. Fo example:
 

  • "symbol*" will retrieve symbol, symbolizes, symbolism, etc.
  • "devia*" will retrieve deviates, deviant, deviance, etc.

Brainstorm words or concepts that are similar in meaning and use those as search terms. If you find a good resource, look at the “Subject Headings” or “Descriptors” listed and use those as additional search terms.

Bibliographies/References/Works Cited pages are great ways to find additional resources. You can search by title in the library’s Catalogs and/or Databases.
