Research databases contain scholarly articles, which can be used to support your research. Unlike popular articles appearing in magazines such as Time, Newsweek and U.S. News & World Reporter, scholarly articles found in research databases are more reliable and authoritative.

This database includes articles from 410 full-text journal covering information concerning topics in emotional and behavioral characteristics, psychiatry & psychology, mental processes, anthropology, and observational & experimental methods.

It contains over 2.5 million citations and summaries, and ninety-eight percent of the covered material is peer-reviewed.
