Q. I need multiple articles on foster children and mental health. Which databases would be best for me to use?

Answer

A good database to start your research would be Academic Search Premier where you can search "foster children" and "mental health" as an advanced search. You then can limit your search in a number of different ways including by only full text and by peer-reviewed articles. Peer-reviewed articles are another good way to limit your search to only scholarly reviewed articles. You will also want to add an additional search term to "foster children" and "mental health" to help narrow your topic.

You will also want to check out our list of databases by subject. Look under the subjects Psychology, Social Sciences, and Social Work. Additional databases that would be good to search include Google Scholar, JSTOR,  socINDEX, PsycINFO, and PsycARTICLES.
