Smart Psychology Google Searches

Whether you are writing a term paper or essay, carrying out a research project or simply interested in finding out more about a particular topic, there is a good chance that you will use the Google search engine. If you do, make sure you check out the following resources and smart search commands when conducting any form of academic information gathering on Google.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides a simple way to search for scholarly literature. You can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.

Google Books

Google Books allows you to search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. Google's huge digital database includes books scanned and converted to text; books provided by authors and publishing houses via the Google Books Partner Program and books courtesy of Google's library partners. In addition, Google has also partnered with magazine publishers in order to digitize their archives.

Typing a simple command followed by your search term into the Google search engine allows you to refine your search results. The two most useful search commands for students are:
