Psychology

Introduction

This guide takes the literature searching process step by step. It is aimed at those needing to complete a thorough and systematic literature search for example as part of a final project, dissertation or thesis. For shorter and less detailed research you may only need a few of the steps. In each section you'll find videos and links to support you.
