  3. 3. We will search the EBSCOHost database PsycINFO for peer reviewed articles concerning aggressive behavior in teenage girls who play violent video games.
  4. 4. For this search we will use the check box, “Suggest Subject Terms”, to view descriptors used to categorize articles. Entering the term aggression provides a drop down menu of suggested terms.
  5. 5. The terms “Aggressive Behavior” and “Aggressiveness” are the terms we wish to search. We select these by checking the box next to the term.
  6. 6. Press “add” to place these in the search form. Use the connector “OR” so that both the terms are searched.
  7. 7. Next we narrow the results, first by age and then by gender.
  8. 8. Next we will do a key word search for video game violence. We can add the key words most appropriate and then press search for the results. As we type the term, the drop down menu displays suggested key words.
  9. 9. Looking at the article titles will tell us how accurate our search has been.
  10. 10. Selecting the folder icon at the top of the screen opens the folder and displays the articles you have selected. Articles may be printed, emailed, or exported by first adding them to the EBSOCHost folder.
  11. 11. Always read the article abstracts.
  12. 12. When you are ready select the items you want, choose the email icon, type in your email address, select the proper citation format and send your results.
