APA PsycInfo Database Reload Scheduled – November 2021


APA PsycInfo Database Reload Scheduled

Dear Ovid APA PsycInfo Customer:

The APA PsycInfo® (PSYC) database is being reloaded to implement the 2021 Thesaurus Tool and Corrections. We expect it to be live on Monday, November 29, 2021. Alerts will be run with this reload on Wednesday, November 24, 2021. We will also make the following changes:

New Field
MeSH Word (MF)

  • The MeSH Word (MF) index allows you to retrieve every Medical Subject Heading as assigned by PubMed that includes a particular word by searching a single word in the MeSH (MH) field.
  • The MP field-set will include the word-indexed MF field instead of the phrase-indexed MH field after the reload, to improve search results when the adjacency operator (ADJn) is used.

Changed Field
Data Set Description (DA)

  • Changed index from Phrase to Word.

Feel free to contact Customer Support with any questions by sending an email to [email protected].
