Q

Answer

If you want to email an entire search, from your result list, click on the Alert/Save/Share link at the top right. You can copy and paste the persistent link in the body of an email to yourself, which will become a hyperlink when you open the email.

Alternatively, you can click the envelope icon in the persistent link area, and send a secure email to yourself.

If you prefer, you can create a free EBSCO account, and save searches and articles. To do so, click the Sign In link in the very top blue banner, then follow the instructions for creating an account.

To get APA citations for individual articles, click on the hyperlinked article titles from your result list. On the right, clickn on the citation tool (icon looks like a sheet of paper) and copy and paste the APA citation into your Word document, correcting for formatting.

You can do the same thing within the article. The icons are in the same place, but they have no text.
