OVID PsychInfo Reload Complete--New Features

The latest reload includes expanded coverage back to 1806, new Thesaurus terms, updated scope notes, and new mapped terms. In addition, Ovid has made the following changes to the database:

· Two new fields: Methodology (MD) and Type of Book (BT)

· Four changed fields: Publication Type (PT), Documentation Type (DT), Auxiliary Material (SV), and Tests & Measures (TM)

· One removed field: Form Content (FC)

Most importantly, the Source field has been restructured for all Publication Types, and the order of the fields in the records now displays according to APA specifications.
