Psychology databases changing platform; retrieve saved citations before Aug 20


PsycNET from APA PsycNET from APA

Aug. 16, 2010 – Several psychology databases, including PsycInfo, PsycArticles, and now PsycBooks, are moving from the EBSCOhost platform to the PsycNET from APA platform. While the search interface will change, the underlying data in the database will be the same. However, if you had created a profile on the EBSCOhost platform and saved list(s) of citations using the My Folder feature available there, these lists will no longer be accessible after August 20, 2010. (Lists from other EBSCOhost databases will continue to work as before.)

There is no simple way to export and then import these saves citations. You will need to sign in to My EBSCOhost, view the content in your saved folders, and recreate this content on the APA PsycNET platform.

APA PsycNET has a personal folder called MyPsycNET. Users can establish an account, free-of-charge. MyPsycNET stores content alerts, subject alerts, and more. 

  • For existing journal alerts, please go to MyPsycNET and select all of the journal alerts desired. You can also set alerts on new books, and book and film reviews.
  • For subject and other query alerts, it is best to rerun your search on APA PsycNET, and save them as topic searches.
  • For lists of saved citations, we recommend exporting them to EndNote, Zotero, or other bibliographic management systems. The software will capture the DOI link in the citation and will link the user to the APA PsycNET platform.

If you need assistance with this process, contact your college librarian.
