Q. I need to find research articles in the field of experimental psychology.
Let's begin the research in PsycInfo database and then Medline available at http://lib.sxu.edu/database. 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.
