Directions:  (I am sending out a Kaplan Library Tips document, it is also available in Doc Sharing.  Use this when completing this activity!!  It is the complete directions for how to use the Library for this Learning Activity and future assignments.)

 

In the library, conduct a search in Academic Search Complete and PsycArticles at the same time (to do this, above the search box, check both when “selecting databases”).  In Advanced Search options, be sure that Full Text and Scholarly (peer reviewed) journals are both checked for each search you do. Use the advanced search options to find the following:

 

1. For publication year 2000-2005 and search term “depression”, what is the APA reference for the first article that results from this search?

 

 

 

2. For publication year 2000-2005 and search term “anxiety,” what is the APA reference for the first article that results from this search?
