In order to search for peer reviewed articles on your topic, go to our library website ( and click on the link for LibGuides. From the main LibGuide page you can Browse by Subject, such as Psychology, to locate the information needed.

For your subject, use the General Psychology LibGuide  and enter the search terms in the Search Everything  Keyword box. 

A sample search suggestion is:

B.F. Skinner AND Biography

Once you are in the database, check the Full Text and Scholarly (Peer reviewed) boxes in the left margin. This will ensure that all the articles in your search results will be complete (you can read or print the whole article) and that the articles are peer reviewed.

An alternate option is to use the Find Psychology Articles tab to search specific databases such as Academic OneFile or Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection. Our library research databases are where you would go to find peer reviewed (or scholarly articles) as well as articles from newspapers and magazines.

Please visit our library guides for Psychology for additional resources.
