PSY203/PSY453 Research Skills Guide: Home


Welcome to the PSY203 Research Skills Guide.

This guide is designed to make your research process easier for Assessment Item 3 which requires you to research for and write an essay.

The guide is intended to help you with this by focusing on:

  • planning your search strategy
  • using databases
  • writing techniques

If you would like a refresher about other library skills, such as sources of information, using Primo Search, evaluating information, and more, head over to the PSY101 Research Skills Guide

Most important of all, use your librarians! If you need help with anything library or research related, get in touch with the library.
