More than a century of research from APA published journals

WASHINGTON — The American Psychological Association is pleased to announce that with the addition of nine journals for 2014, the full-text content of PsycARTICLES® now includes more than 100 scholarly and professional titles. PsycARTICLES is the only resource for full-text articles from APA-published journals, and also includes those from the Canadian Psychological Association and a selection of English-language titles from the Hogrefe Publishing Group. The database was originally released in 1998, and included coverage of 35 titles. Since then, the PsycARTICLES coverage list has consistently and steadily grown to its current 102 titles.

New to the PsycARTICLES coverage list for 2014 are the following APA-published journals:

“Surpassing 100 titles in PsycARTICLES is a very proud moment for the APA journals program,” said Gary R. VandenBos, PhD., APA publisher. “APA journals represent the core and breadth of psychological science, and include some of the most highly cited and well-respected publications known worldwide.” He continued, “We maintain focus on the ongoing growth of the database. Through our publishing program, and in accordance with the APA mission, we continually strive to advance the creation, communication and application of psychological knowledge to benefit society and improve people's lives.”

PsycARTICLES offers users the complete electronic collection of APA-published scholarly and professional and affiliated journals, and provides full text from volume 1, issue 1, to the present for most titles. With articles from as early as 1894, nearly 200,000 records spanning more than a century of research are offered to users of this extensive catalog of peer-reviewed journals from the leading publisher in psychology. PsycARTICLES is available for institutional license directly from APA on the APA PsycNET® platform, and also from several vendors, including EBSCO, Hogrefe Publishing Group, Ovid and ProQuest. The database also is available to APA members and other individuals through the APA PsycNET Gold, Gold Plus and Platinum database packages, and pay-per-view through PsycARTICLES Direct.
