Psychology Research


undefinedThis guide focuses on psychology and research methods related resources that are available in the library, recommended web sites, and open access. These resources support teaching and research in PSY 290:  Research Methods course.

Psychology and Research methods are multifaceted disciplines. There is no single section in the library; resources may be found throughout the collection and in various formats. Study and research in research method is often interdisciplinary, so relevant information also may be found in sources that are not strictly on psychology. Image source: Pixabay Puzzle Share Think Brain Thinking Function.
