Interested in strengthening your APA database searching skills? Join us for the next round of APA PsycInfo webinars designed for students, faculty, and anyone else who wants to learn more about how to search APA PsycInfo more effectively!
The 30-minute APA PsycInfo – Advanced Search session explores a few of the added-value fields in APA PsycInfo and using them to uncover much more than journal articles. Search demos will demonstrate how to identify what research is happening at which institutions; finding new journals in which to publish your work; information about tests used in related research; and potential funding opportunities for your project.
Search tips and strategies covered in both sessions are relevant to all search platforms — APA PsycNet®, EBSCOhost, Ovid, and ProQuest.
The sessions may be attended separately, but we encourage you to take both if you are interested!
You can register with GoTo Webinar for one of the following times:

1. At the top of the screen, expand the My File Cabinet menu and select My Papers to view your list of saved papers. Open the file containing the reference list you want to export.
2. In the left navigation menu of the paper editing screen, use the arrow to expand the EXPORT menu and select Download.
3. Under the Download Paper heading, select Word (*.docx, selected by default) or PDF as the file type.
4. Use the Download Paper button to export the file.
5. The exported file will be saved in your browser’s default Downloads folder (or the location specified when saving the file).
Tip: To obtain a reference list for an annotated bibliography, begin a new paper by entering a title and then use the Add References button to immediately begin creating your reference list (see screenshot below). When you’ve finished adding references, use the steps above to export the paper as a Word file and continue working in Word to insert your annotation for each reference.
