Search Tips and Training

Tips for Searching PsycINFO

  • Use the Advanced Search
  • Check the Thesaurus for recommended search terms, word definitions, and historical usage of a search term
  • Enter each separate word in a different box (theories, concepts, and diagnostic disorders as defined by the DSM-5 are great search terms)
  • Select the Boolean/Phrase radio button, and use AND, OR, NOT to search multiple words or concepts
  • Use an asterisk * at the end of a word to get variant endings: child* yields child and children and childhood
  • Use quotation marks to search for a phrase (adjacent words that must be searched in exact order): "obsessive compulsive disorder"
  • Consider limiting by Source Type: Scholarly Journals or Books or Dissertations
  • Consider using dates, age, gender, methodologies, populations, tests & measures, language as limits
  • The full bibliographic record will indicate if the article is peer reviewed, it will also provide the publication history
