A Guide to Psychology Research: Articles

Library PIN

Off-campus access to research databases is restricted to current CSU faculty, staff, and students.

To access research databases from off-campus, you will have to authenticate first -- select Cleveland State University, and then enter your name, CSU ID, and Library PIN. If you don't have a Library PIN yet, then you can create one on the My Account page.

IF YOU GET AN ERROR MESSAGE try using the "Forgot Your PIN" link.


InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

Use InterLibrary Loan Services to get articles, books, dissertations, and other materials you need that are not available from the Michael Schwartz Library or from OhioLINK. You will need a Library PIN to make an ILL request.

Journal Articles

To find peer-reviewed journal articles on a topic, search in one of the Research Databases listed below. Research Databases contain citations or references to articles published in various journals, magazines, and newspapers. Many of the Research Databases also contain the full text of articles, either in HTML or PDF format.

If you need the article, but we do not own the full-text of the article, you can try to order it from InterLibrary Loan.This service is free to you, since the library pays for it.

If you are interested in the workings of scientific research and publishing, you may want to subscribe to Retraction Watch: "Tracking retractions as a window into the scientific process"
