Older DSMs

NOTE: There has been a change. Older editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders are no longer included in our PsychiatryOnline Premium Collection package.

You may be able to find a free PDF of the edition that you need, such as this 1987 DSM III-R in the Internet Archive. Please contact me if you are unable to find the edition that you need. 


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: It is easy to get inundated with results. 

f 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.
