An introductory guide to key psychology resources, and getting help for your assignments.

Key databases

Databases are collections of resources, primarily journal articles, but they can also contain conference papers, videos, ebooks, reports, images and more. Many databases specialise in a specific subject area, so you'll know when you're searching the database you will find material relevant to your studies.

You will find more databases on Psychology here. Review the details of each database before making your selection and if prompted please logon using your RMIT credentials. Or log in and search across a range of resources via LibrarySearch

APA referencing style

APA Style is the referencing and publication style created and supported by the American Psychological Association. It is an author-date style, which means you use the surnames of the authors and the date of publication in text, and the reference list is in alphabetical order.  See RMIT Easy Cite for instructions on referencing using the APA 7th edition. 

For more detailed instructions see the style manual published by the  American Psychological Association
