If you wish, you can also search citation databases (which contain details of research and articles) and resources directly. For psychology the main resource databases are:
Benefits of searching these databases directly:
- there may be fewer results, but perhaps they will be more relevant;
- it is useful to have experience of directly searching sources.
Downsides of searching these databases directly:
- they are indexed in Primo Central too so their results would appear there anyway;
- searching them directly means means fewer results than searching Primo Central;
- results won't always lead to a full text article.

Journals provide important sources of academic information. You can search for journal articles using the Articles search in Primo.
What is meant by peer reviewed?
Peer reviewed articles have been reviewed and accepted by specialists in their field before being published. This ensures that the journals maintain their reputation and the research quality is upheld.
Use the filter in Primo to narrow by 'Peer Reviewed'.
