Finding Information About Tests in Journal Articles
The UIC Library provides the following online electronic resources
you can use to find journal articles:
UIC Library: Alphabetical List of Electronic Resources
Particularly useful sources here (note that these will open in a separate window):
- HAPI: Health and Psychosocial Instruments (UIC only)
Provides citations for finding journal articles about standardized tests, information about test publishers, and citations to Mental Measurements Yearbook for 1985-onward.
Provides citations for finding psychology journal articles about standardized tests published from 1967-onward.
- PsychInfo Historic Backfile (UIC only)
Provides citations for finding psychology journal articles about standardized tests published from 1887-1966.
Strategy for using HAPI and PsychInfo:
- Search for the name of your test, such as: "strong campbell"
- Copy or print out the full citations to journal articles that look useful.
- Use UICCAT to find where the journal containing your articles can be found in the Library.
Example of a full citation:|
Strong, E. K.; Campbell, D. P. Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory. Kirschner, T., Hoffman, M. A., and
Hill, C. E. (1994). Case study of the process and outcome of career counseling. Journal of Counseling Psychology,
Using the citation above to find the full text article:
UICCAT will tell you the Location and Call Number to find the journal in the library (in this case, "Main 2nd floor south/Call Number Area" with the call number "BF637.C6 J6.")
- You will need to search for the title of the journal in UICCAT
- NOTIS catalog search: t = journal of counseling psychology
- Web catalog search: select "title" and type in "journal of counseling psychology"
FINAL STEP! Go to the location UICCAT lists for your journal (this might be 2nd floor north Microfilms South, 2nd floor Call Number South, 2nd floor "by Title" South). When you have found the journal, check your citation again for the particular volume, number and pages you need (Volume 41, Number 2, pages 216-226 in the above example.)
