Find Articles in Databases

You will links to full-text or abstracted articles in the selected databases. These are the key databases that are often discussed in Counseling research classes and by other students.  

Google Scholar

You may also want to search Google Scholar. I often use Google Scholar to find more recent work that cites an article or book I found in PsycINFO or Discover (cited by).

Be aware that you will not be able to limit your Google Scholar results to the level you can with PsycINFO.

Counseling Journals List

This list of journals is selective. Search our databases for article topics and/or use the Journal List search (below) to determine to which titles we subscribe and their coverage dates.

Meta-Searches are offered to provide assistance limiting your search to these journals. However, articles and other relevant work skipped by this search.  Use these searches with that knowledge in mind.

Counseling Journals Meta-Search  (ACA Journals and other Counseling titles listed on this page)

The search uses the Discover portal so you will need to remove "Available in Library Collection" to see the full list of results. Use this search with keywords, authors, titles, subjects, etc.

NOTE: Some journals or articles are not available full-text. If the Blume Library does not have a journal OR there is an embargo on the article you need, please request the article via Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

ACA Meta-Search (only retrieves results from journals produced by the American Counseling Association )
