Recent Searches captures all the searches you conduct in a single session—once you log-off, the search history resets. To save a search for future use, save it to My PsycNET.
Your search query and database(s) searched are listed here. You have the option to perform the following actions:
Edit your search: This will bring you back to the search page. You can add or subtract additional search terms and limits.
Run your search: This will re-run the search.
Save your search strategy in My PsycNET.
Set Alert: This will create an email alert. This will prompt you to sign in to your My PsycNET account. From here you will be able to name your search, add notes about the search, determine the frequency of the email alert, and determine when the alert will expire. Go back to My PsycNET at any time to edit or delete the alert.
Get RSS Feed: This will open a pop-up window that lets you create an RSS Feed.
Get Permalink: This will open a box with a permanent link to your search results that you can copy and paste.
Combine Checked Searches: Put a check next to your searches and use Boolean operators to combine them.
