APA PsycInfo (Ovid) - Tutorial: Save Your Searches

Tips on using PsycINFO, including using the subject headings, narrowing/expanding your search, finding case studies, how to save your searches

Save your searches

You might want to save your searches to review later. Click "Save All".

You might need to a create a PsycINFO account if you haven't already. Create an Account. Your "personal account name" is a username that you create (I suggest using the first part of your Adler email). The password can include numbers and/or letters, but not special characters.

Then, create a search name so you can find it again. Keep the type as permanent or the search will only be saved for 24 hours.

Your Searches are saved under "My Searches & Alerts". Find the search you want to run, check the box, and click "Run". This will perform the search, and you will go back to the "Search" tab to find the results.
