Most large newspapers, such as The New York Times , The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal are searchable on the Internet. Access to an archive of previously published articles may be available for a nominal fee.
As we consider the TWG’s comments and recommendations, we would also like to invite input from the field on the following questions:
"I'm interested in the topic of dreaming, and I'd like to find an article on it. I'm not a psychologist, so I don't want anything that is too technical. Where can I find some easy-to-read articles that discuss research and topics in this area of psychology?"
