Databases that might include appended test instruments.
Some test instruments are included in the books, journal articles or online rather than published on their own. Unless otherwise noted, all test instruments are copyrighted and permission should be sought from the copyright-holder (usually the person who developed the test) before they are used.
Of course, you can always ask me or one of the other helpful UI librarians.
Some unpbulished psychological tests and measurement instruments are available online through the PsycInfo database. Here are some tips for finding them.
Finding instruments in articles
The American Psychological Association indexes the names of instruments in PsycInfo's Tests & Measurements field. In addition, since 2004 they have used the word "appended" to indicate when an article includes the actual instrument. Even if you do not know the name to test you want, it's possible to search for online instruments simply by searching the Test & Measurements field for the word "appended". For example, you could search for articles about depression on one row of the search box and "appended" in the Tests & Measurements field in the second row to get articles about depression that have testing instruments included with them.
You could also try looking for the name of the test and "appended" in general (any field) searches.
