Suggestions for finding tests are listed below:
- Email the creators of the test, typically listed in PsycTests or the article where you found the test
- Use the name of the test or the name of the authors to do a citation search in a database such as Scopus or Web of Science. Sometimes people include copies of the tests and measures that they cite in their articles.
