A Guide about psychological resources

Researchers, psychologists, and scientists in the field publish the conclusions and findings they make in their studies or research in academic or "scholarly" journals. These sources - which we typically read online in library databases - are often peer-reviewed, which means that other scholars and scientists in the psychology discipline agree that articles are methodologically correct and the findings are interesting or important before publishing them. This is significant because it is a filter that ensures that journal articles are held to the highest standard for reliability and authority. 

The science life cycle of information, below, summarizes this process of creating academically-valid information. Click the picture for a tutorial that describes this cycle in greater detail. Note: The "Find" component is specifically about another library. (Source: University of California, Irvine Libraries)
