PSYC 1200 - Introduction

Welcome!

Welcome to PSYC 1200's Library session!

For todays exercise, we're going to be looking at a few articles pulled from the news.  Each article references a scientific study.  You should be able to identify the important citation elements for the study, so that we can track it down!

Let's start with this article: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/09/180926153219.htm

How to track down your citation!

What do we know about the study in question!

  • Does the article reference the name of the Journal?  [Search for the Journal in PRIMO!]
  • Are the authors names listed?  [Trying searching for authors in Academic Search Complete!]
  • Does the article include the year of publication?  
  • Does the article link to any additional information?
  • Are there unsubstantiated claims?
