Medical Literature: PsycINFO via Ovid

Go to application form.


Get familiar with PsycINFO (behavioral science and mental health) via het Ovid search interface. A good working knowledge of PubMed is necessary and can be obtained by the AMC e-learning course in Dutch or the PubMed tutorial in English. Matches perfectly as a follow up on the Searching for a Systematic Review course and Embase/Medline via Ovid course.

The course runs once a year. The course takes 2 to 2.5 hours.


Start searching PsycINFO during a 2,5 hours hands-on session. As preparation you need to follow two e-learning modules and make an assignment. This will take on average 1-2 hours, depending on searching skills and knowledge of PubMed. During the course you have the opportunity to practice and fine-tune your own query/PICO..
