Getting Help


I need to find research articles in the field of experimental psychology.

Particularly, I need to create an instrument based on published instruments on the why some cancer patients are motivated by their illness and others are not.

Let's begin the research in PsycInfo database and then Medline available at First, we need to identify the right concepts/terminology. NOTE: the brackets and quotation marks are important!

(neoplasms OR cancer) AND ("patient attitude" OR motivation OR "coping behavior" OR personality) AND (survey OR instrument). The search was then limited to age group of 18 and older. Other limit options are available on the left of the results screen. Both databases provided good results.
