Research in Psychological Science

Psychologists study human behavior using empirical methods. The student of psychology engaged in research may need to understand technical terms, find and critique tests for measuring human behavior and abilities, and locate and review relevant studies before designing a new research project. This guide to reference materials in psychology lists some of the most important library resources in the field. It is far from complete; please don't hesitate to consult with a librarian if you aren't finding what you need.
