Hello, I am looking for the best way to research articles discussing the risk and benefits of starting in the workforce upon graduating with a bachelors in psychology?

Answer

Hello Sabrina:

Thanks for contacting the Online Library.  For your research today, I would recommend the following databases:

·         PsycARTICLES and PsycINFO (ProQuest)

·         Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection (EBSCO)

You can find both of these databases listed under the Find Articles and More button on the Online Library.  The databases are in alphabetical order.

I would recommend using the advanced search in both of these databases.  For search terms I would recommend:

·         bachelor* psychology

·         degree* in psychology

·         advantage* OR benefit*

·         disadvantage* OR risk*

 

For the search terms listed above, you should mix and match them.  Additionally, you will want to use the *, which will bring back the root word with various endings (for example advantage or advantages).

 

I would recommend checking the box for full text to bring back only records with the full text of the articles attached.  Here is an example of how you will want to set up your searches:

Please feel free to contact us again for any of your research needs.
