Using Psych Articles
PsycArticles offers two searching formats: Basic and Advanced. The default is the Basic format. For a Basic search, simply enter your search terms into the box labeled “Find” and click on the Search button. Terms can be combined using AND (to find items which contain both terms), OR (to find items containing either term), and NOT (to find items containing the first term but not the second term). For example: stress and college and academic performance.
You can also choose to limit your results to full-text items only, to items available in print format at the Athens State Library, to items published in a specific journal or within a specified time period, or to items published in peer-reviewed (scholarly) journals. A search statement can also be expanded to search within the full text of articles or to search for related words.
