Databases are large, searchable collections of academic materials. Many provide access to full-text journal articles, whilst others provide article abstracts/citations or other types of information. Databases are useful because they provide access to high-quality, authoritative and up-to-date research in your subject area.
To access Roehampton’s online databases you will be required to authenticate access. Almost all of our resources use a system called OpenAthens to enable you to login.
It is always best to use the database links provided in this guide rather than searching for databases on the Internet, as the links in this guide will direct you straight to the University of Roehampton's login page where you can enter your Roehampton username and password to enter the database.
The following listed databases are available to Aventis Psychology students and include subject-related eBooks and eJournal articles plus other useful content.

A growing collection of eBooks in all subject areas. eBooks are designed to work on your PC, laptops and mobile devices, but not Kindle (or other eBook readers). When using eBooks we recommend that you select the read online option, rather than download the whole eBook. Reading online will give you the additional functionality to copy and print from the eBook, as well as highlight text, make notes, etc. Click here for off-campus access.
The main referencing styles used at UR are listed below. Please note: there is no standard style of Harvard referencing, every university/institution has their own version. In addition, online reference generators such as Mendeley, Zotero, etc. will also contain a different version of Harvard, so please be aware.
If you are unsure which referencing style to use please check with your tutors.
