Search for Tests in Scholarly Journal Articles

While many scholarly articles describe studies conducted with particular tests, they do not usually include the test itself. But you can still find information about the tests (such as test author and contact, and interpretation of results) in the literature by searching the databases in this guide.

Searching for tests in PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES is the same. Type in the name of the test and select TM Test and Measures in the drop down menu.
