Search profiles may be formulated in German, English, or both. Only search profiles in English may be transferred to PsycINFO. Search strategies in English may be carried out in a SUPERBASE search (Superbase PY81;PI67) or the search strategy transferred from PSYNDEX to PsycINFO with the command SBAS PI67;S=ALL or from PsycINFO to PSYNDEX with SBAS PY81;S=ALL. Weighted (/w1) searches in CT are possible in both PSYNDEX and PsycINFO. However, weighted searches in Section Headings (SH) and Section Codes (SC) are only possible in PSYNDEX and may not be transferred to PsycINFO.
