  3. 3. PsycINFO – ContentPsycARTICLESPsycFIRSTPsycSCANs> 80% journal articles3% books5% chapters12% dissertations{
  4. 4. PsycINFO – perspectiveOverlap other relevant bibliographic databases:Journals in PsycINFO:• Embase – 26%Medline (Pubmed) – 27%Compared with Embase AND Medline 1402 unique journals in PsycINFO** Source::, as of 03/11/ 2009Books in PsycINFO:• PsycBOOKS ≈ 5%Similar/otherwise relevant resources:• Psychiatry Online, PILOTS, ERIC, The Cochrane Library, Web of Science, WHO-ICTRP …
  5. 5. PsycINFO – Subject searchHands-on buttons training (1)Access PsycINFO outside AMC IP range:• Staff: / use AMC-account• Students medicine/MIK: / use UvAnet-ID• Outside AMC: / use UvAnet-IDDemo:What is the effect of EMDR therapy on PTSD patients?
  6. 6. PsycINFO – Subject searchHands-on buttons training (2)Why consider employing thesaurus terms?• Captureacronyms, homonyms, hyponyms and synonymsMind you: NOT hypernyms! (why?)• Retrieve records containing- relevant terms you didn’t search for- topic(s) not otherwise covered in the record
  7. 7. PsycINFO – Subject searchMaximizing relevance (‘precision’)Assignment 2.1Search for one answer to the following background question :How does the Child PTSD Symptom Scale perform regardingdiagnostic accuracy (in- and exclusion of PTSD in children ofmax. 18 y. old)?Maximize relevance by applying any (combination of) options below:• Rephrasing your question• Adding (additional) limits• Adding PICO elements to your search• Using narrower terms• Restricting to specific search fields
  8. 8. PsycINFO – Subject searchMaximizing the number of relevant records (‘sensitivity’)Maximize the number of retrieved relevant records:• Extracting synonyms from relevant full records by screeningabstract (.ab) and title (.ti)• Searching all fields (.mp)• Omitting elements from your PICO• Using broader terms• Avoiding the use of limits
  9. 9. PsycINFO – Subject searchMaximizing the number of relevant records (‘sensitivity’)[Optional expert level]• Analyse “Related Terms” and “Used For” in the APA thesaurus• Extract key concepts (.id) and classification codes (.cc) fromrelevant records by screening• If applicable: search .tm field
  10. 10. PsycINFO – Subject searchFinding evidenceClinical queries:- filters)- field values)
  11. 11. PsycINFO – Translate search to other database(s) (2)Failures trying to re-execute your search without adjustment,due to:• Other fieldcodes for the same fieldi.e.: journal word = .jx (Embase), .jw (PsycINFO)• Unique fieldcodes per databasei.e.: .id in PsycINFO• Multifieldcodes search different fieldsi.e.: .mp, .tw• Differences in thesauri
  12. 12. PsycINFO – Translate search other database(s) (3)More on differences between thesauriExample: functional resonance imaging / fmriMedlinemagnetic resonance imaging [MeSH]Embase [Emtree]BT: nuclear magnetic resonance imagingfunctional magnetic resonance imagingPsycINFO [APA thesaurus]BT: magnetic resonance imagingfunctional magnetic resonance imagingBe aware of dismbiguation between terminology systemsExample: neuropsychology
