This guide links to sources for the behavior modification paper assigned the PS3373A - Learning in Spring 2020 by Dr. Heather Hill.
The Key Resources page provides short descriptions of how to locate articles in the psychology database PsycINFO or in the Blume Library's portal Discover.
This page also includes:
The APA, Citations page shows how to find citations in EBSCO databases (like Discover and PsycINFO), includes details about APA citation style, various online tools, and a link to the Zotero citation software program guide. I wil only briefly allude to this page in class, but it is here as an ongoing reference for you.
We will search both database sources, listed below, in the PS3373 research class. I have included some tips to locate articles in each database. We will discuss these searches, what they mean, and how to try new things if you do not find the results you want.
PsycINFO is an APA-produced database that focuses on psychology. I suggest the following keywords to locate articles in PsycINFO. These are based on the ideas of classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and/or cognitive studies.
Discover is a portal, and hence, it finds results from many disciplines and levels. You will need to narrow your focus to find relevant articles from Discover since it does not focus on psychology.
I suggest the following keywords to locate articles in Discover
Evaluate the source to see if it meets your criteria for methodology.
Looking for a specific journal, magazine, or newspaper?
Use Journals List to search for the title of a journal, magazines, or newspaper and determine if the library offers online access or print access to that publication.
Double-check with a librarian to verify that we don't have what you're seeking. If our library does not have the article you want, St. Mary's University undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff may order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Be sure to allow up to two weeks to receive the ordered items.
