Thanks, I think that might help. I found other links about some universities journals. There is a lot of research going on. I need to talk to these people.
Hey Monolith, they need people for experiments.
Trick is most of these things are found in JOURNALS as articles. You'll need to go to a local university to access them.
The other alternative is PubMed as listed on that site...trouble with that database of journals is that you won't be able to access most of the articles (abstracts only) since you need to pay a fee and subscribe to them.
University campuses have EXCELLENT database access to hundreds of journals. That's where you NEED to go for SCIENTIFICALLY ACCURATE DATA.
Not all the journals on pubmed are good ones. A lot of the lower quality journals are on there. Even with peer reviewed journals it depends on the qualifications of the reviewers, how many there are, what standards are used, etc. I haven't yet found a good list that rates journals based on these properties, probably because a large degree of it is a matter of opinion. However after you research for a while you can get an idea about the quality and type of research most journals tend to have as long as you evaluate everything you look at critically.
