Welcome to the Psychology Subject Guide

Welcome to the subject guide for Psychology. This guide is compiled by your Subject Librarian and designed to direct you to the essential resources for your subject. 

Use the menu on the left to look through the different sections of the guide.

This guide covers the core resources you need for day-to-day study and research.  However, you may sometimes find other subject guides useful for specialised topics, including:

Professional Bodies

Professional bodies are useful sources of information for subject news, conferences and events, access to professional networks and careers and job adverts.  

SAGE Social Science Research Methods collection

Sage Research Methods (SRM) is a fantastic collection of books and case studies exploring and illustrating research methods for the social sciences.  

  • Books include Little Green Books and Little Blue Books, short guides to quantitative and qualitative research methods
  • Over 1000 case studies illustrating research methods
  • SRM Project Planner - accessible advice on every stage of the research process from defining a question to writing up and sharing your research
  • We don't subscribe to everything from SRM - use 'Refine By' when searching and browsing to see what is available at SHU
