Use library search techniques

Use search limits

APA PsycInfo search limits with 2014 to 2023 publication date limit and Academic Journals source type limit selectedPsycINFO has many ways that you can refine, or customize, your search using limits. These are available on the left-hand side of the search screen.

  • For this assignment, make sure you limit your results to articles from the last ten years using the Publication Date slider (or typing in the From box).
  • Limit your results to Academic Journals under Source Types to see only journal articles.
  • You may also want to limit your results to English and review the other limit options.
  • NOTE: Avoid using the Linked Full Text limit—it eliminates many of the articles you can access immediately. See "Get full text & cite" for full text options.
