PsycInfo / CSA Illumina

The existing CSA filter is close but garbles the fields in PsycInfo searches, primarily because of a Source definition that doesn't match the search results. So I tried to modify it and it seems works OK for journal articles, but CSA uses the same field, SO: differently as a function of the type of reference. Two illustrative examples:

Code: Select all

SO: Source
    Cognitive Neuropsychiatry. Vol 8(2), May 2003, pp. 107-127
PT: Publication Type
    Journal; Peer Reviewed Journal; Journal Article

Code: Select all

SO: Source
    DiLalla, Lisabeth F.; Dollinger, Stephanie M. Clancy (1995).
    Assessment of biological mechanisms across the life span.  (pp.
    121-150).  Hillsdale, NJ, England: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc.
    xii, 203 pp.
PT: Publication Type
    Book; Edited Book; Chapter
These were both taken from the same PsycInfo search. Has anyone figured out a way to handle this using the Bookends import filter model?

Bookends doesn't process records differently based on reference type. One solution for you would be to define a second Source, and pre-process your download to change the source tag for your secondary (meaning less represented) reference Type. For example, add a 1 to it (SO1:) (in a word or text processor) and define an SO1: source parser in Bookends. It will be a little bit of extra work, but you should be successful imports.
