PSY 2012 - Mellan (Plant City): Instructions for using PsycArticles

Information needed to complete the journal article analysis paper in Dr. Mellan's class.

Finding Journal Articles

What journals can be used?

To complete this assignment you will need to use a research article published in a journal in the field of psychology.  The library has access to a variety of journals that are available through the HCC Libraries in both print and online library databases.

Below is an example of journal titles that are available in print at the HCC Plant City campus library:

  • Developmental Psychology
  • Journal of Abnormal Psychology
  • Journal of Family Psychology
  • Psychology of Addictive Behaviors

These are not the only journals that can be used but as long as the journal is in the field of psychology - that is important to remember.  The HCC Libraries has an electronic database called PsycArticles that provides access to several psychology related journals.
