Psychology and Film: Finding Articles

Finding Articles on Psychology

The primary database we use to find articles in Psychology is PsycINFO.

PsycINFO allows you to search and refine by standard facets

  • Peer-reviewed
  • Date
  • Publication Type
  • Language

PsycINFO has a few special facets that you can search and refine by

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Classification
  • Methodology

PsycINFO has a thesaurus (click on the box Suggest Subject Terms) which is very useful in finding short definition of terms and related terms (including more general and more specific terms).

Keep in mind when searching for specific film titles that an article might not be about the film.

Finding Articles on Film

The primary database we use to find articles in film is Film & Television Literature Index.

Film & Television Literature Index allows you to search and refine by standard facets

  • Peer-reviewed
  • Date
  • Publication Type
  • Language

Film & Television Literature Index also allows you to refine by

  • Source Type

which is helpful when you want to find reviews.

Keep in mind that most of the articles in Film & Television Literature Index are not peer-reviewed.
