Welcome to “From the Deck of . . .” an irregular series in which we highlight search demos and other information from the slide decks we create for our live training sessions. You can view and download these materials from the PsycINFO SlideShare account.

  • New Handbooks from APA
  • New Online Dictionary of Psychology
  • APA Librarian Travel Award Recipients
  • Magination Press Overview

We also spent some time providing thoughts on integrating PsycINFO into a systematic review including:

  • Practical PsycINFO search tips for systematic reviews
  • Issues for reporting and replicability
