Newspapers

A newspaper may be the first place that a research study in psychology is widely reported.  The formal report on a study (as an "original article" in a scholarly journal) takes longer to be published.  Searches in the following databases will pull up results from the science section and general news section of major newspapers, as well as any other part of the newspaper that mentions a particular study. 

See a full list of available News sources at the University Libraries, including contemporary and historical newspapers.

Search Tip

In searching newspaper databases, it is easy to get inundated with results.  If possible, search for words associated with a specific event, person, trend, or even a slang phrase rather than general keywords.  For example, instead of "psychology research," try "sleep deprivation and memory."  If you are unfamiliar with a topic, start with a general search and then redo the search when you discover the names of specific people and events associated with it.
