Search these databases for articles

Listed below are the most useful databases. For more database options see the Child Development Database List page.

Finding the Actual Article

Some of the database citations will not include the full text article. If this is the case, use the Find It @SacState link, which can usually be found at the end of a database citation.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches for references to scholarly articles and research papers.  Sometimes the full text is posted online and linked, other times users will see a "Find It at Sac State" option next to the Google Scholar listing (see explaination above).  For all but the most simple queries, using Google Scholar Advanced Search (click on the arrow in the Google Scholar search box to get Advanced Search Form) is recommended.
