3. Find and cite four sources for your paper.

Recommended Database for this Assignment


Open this document and use it during our class session to identify at least 4 articles that fit the criteria required for your biography. The requirements for this paper are four scholarly journal articles in the field of psychology. Two of the articles should be empirical in nature. The other articles can be literature reviews or empirical, but must be scholarly (i.e. no websites, newspapers, magazines, books, or book review sources.) You should be able to find at least two of these articles in the library instruction session. Use this worksheet to record your findings. There is room for up to 5 articles, so feel free to record information on any others you find relevant.
