To Search all 9 selected journals in PsycINFO in one search without getting any other publications, search the journal's ISSN (International Standard Serials Number) instead of the journal's title.
When searching for journal articles, you will notice the View Now button on many of your search results. Clicking on the View Now button will lead you to links for the full-text of the article or let you know that we do not have electronic full-text for that article.

Truncation is usually represented by an asterisk (*). To use truncation, enter the root of a search term and replace the ending with an *. EBSCOhost finds all forms of that word.
For example, type comput* to find the words computer or computing.
Note: The Truncation symbol (*) may also be used between words to match any word.
For example, a midsummer * dream will return results that contain the exact phrase, a midsummer night’s dream.
The important thing about Boolean operators is how they are interpreted by the search software.
AND combines terms-all specified terms must be present for the article/citation to be retrieved. This operator narrows a search. Example: dogs AND cats
OR creates sets of similar terms (or synonyms). This operator broadens a search.
Example: colleges OR universities OR "higher education"
NOT eliminates a term from the search. (Use with caution.) Example: animals NOT horses
