Article literature is indexed by the main psychology database, PsycInfo. You can search PsycInfo via PsycNet OR PsycInfo via Ovid. They both have the same PsycInfo content, just different search interfaces. PsycNet is more user friendly while Ovid has more advanced features.
Get background information by using a subject encyclopedia in the field, such as the Corsini Encyclopedia of Psychology, or International Encyclopedia of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
Manage all the materials you find from various sources using a tool like RefWorks to save, organize, and format all your citations.
