Sometimes journal articles include the tests, inventories and measures that were used in the research, especially if they were developed by the authors. It’s simple to find these tests.

PsycINFO has a field (in the dropdown menu) for Tests and Measures. Choose Tests and Measures from the dropdown menu and type in the topic or a few words from the name. In a second box, also choose Tests and Measures from the dropdown menu, but type in appended in the box.

Type in "appended" in the tests and measures field

In the record, look in the Tests and Measures field. It lists all tests and measures used in the research. If the test is included in the article, “(Appended)” will follow the name of the test.

"Appended" will appear after full-text tests
