APA PsycNET Mobile App APA PsycNET Mobile App

Does your institution use the APA PsycNET platform? If so, you and your users will want to take a look at the APA PsycNET Mobile App, which was released into the iTunes Store and Google Play in late August.

The free app allows users to search PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, PsycBOOKS, PsycEXTRA and PsycCRITIQUES. Users can email and export search results and view individual records.

Those who have access rights to any of these databases can log into the app to access full-text PDFs. Users with PsycTESTS subscriptions can also log in to search PsycTESTS.

Visit the APA PsycNET Mobile App page for more information or the APA PsycNET Mobile Support page for instructions on how to log in and access an institutional or individual subscription.

Cover of APA Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology (small)APA Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology

In mid-October, APA released the eleventh addition to the APA Handbooks in Psychology Series: the APA Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology.

Volume 1 focuses on the history and development of current practices in study of sexuality. This volume takes a person-oriented approach, exploring desire, orientation and other aspects of sexuality. Volume 2 takes a step back to look at contextual factors that influence sexuality, such as education, religion, the media and more.

As with other handbooks in the series, it will be available electronically and in print.
