Cognitive Science: Articles

Recommended Databases

Good databases to start your search.

Tip: The databases on ProQuest (ERIC, LLBA, MLA, PsycINFO, Socioloical Abstracts) or EbscoHost (Academic Search Complete, PsycINFO) can be searched together by "choosing databases", but you will lose database-specific search fields, such as the age group limiter in PsycINFO. Same with the Web of Science/INSPEC cross search.
