What is PsycINFO and Why Use It?

What is PsycInfo?

  • PsycINFO is an abstract database to scholarly journal articles published in all fields of psychology from around the world since the early 1800s. 
  • PsycINFO contains bibliographic citations, abstracts, cited references, and descriptive information. 
  • Full-text linking allows for access to articles in journals and conference proceedings already subscribed to by the University of Toronto.
  • You can search for articles by keywords (significant terms in title, abstract, subject or tags), author, or journal title.
  • PsycINFO combines a wealth of content with precise indexing: Use the THESAURUS (in purple TOOLS tab) to explore your topic and find controlled vocabulary tags that best correspond to your research topics.

Why use PsycInfo?

  • It is the most complete resource for finding journal articles in the field of psychology.
  • Controlled vocabulary tags added to each article (accessed through THESAURUS or as SUBJECT HEADINGS) allow you to find articles on your topic even if the authors used different terms than the ones you are familiar with.
