Searching for Articles in Databases

The library databases are for searching for articles on a topic. EBSCO Education Full Text and EBSCO PsycINFO are two databases to search for articles about Educational Psychology. When you select an article title from a database, you will sometimes just have access to the citation information and the abstract. Very often, though, the full text will be available there as a PDF or in HTML. If not and if you'd like to read the entire article, then try searching Google Scholar to look for the PDF there, before submitting an Interlibrary Loan request.

Searching for Journals vs. Searching for Articles

The E-Journals & Periodicals/Publications database is for searching for a specific journal title and it is most often used when you already have a citation for an article. To search for a number of articles in many different journals, try searching a database listed on this guide or on the Databases A-Z page.
