MAT-525_History and Theory: Finding Authors in PsycINFO

APA PsycInfo

Searching by author in PsycINFO

*Remember, the author search will only bring up items that were written by that individual, not items written about them.*

1. Go to PsycINFO

2. Above the search box, change the search type from Keyword to Author by clicking the bubble next to Author. Type in the author's name, listing the last name first, a comma, and then the first initial or first name.

3. You might see multiple possible correct listings if they sometimes have the middle initial, for example.

4. Click Search for Selected Terms, which will retrieve all the citations by this author.
