Overview

PsycARTICLES is a database of full-text articles from journals published by the American Psychological Association, the APA Educational Publishing Foundation, the Canadian Psychological Association, and Hogrefe & Huber. The database includes all material from the print journals.

The database can be searched in several ways including by specifying keywords that may occur in the article title, abstract, or the full-text, or by author names and journal titles. Each retrieved record has a link to the corresponding full-text article, which is almost always available in PDF format (so Adobe Acrobat reader is needed for viewing) and in HTML format. Each record also has a link to the Table of Contents (TOC) for the issue in which the article is published.

The database can also be searched for articles of interest by browsing directly through the journal titles and then clicking to the tables of contents for the respective volumes and issues. In addition, an alerting function is available that sends an email to the user notifying them that a new issue has been added to the database.

Journals Covered

Most of the 78 APA journals included in PsycARTICLES now go back to volume 1, issue 1. The earliest journal is Psychological Review, which was started in 1894. The database also contains journals that are no longer published. For a full list, click here.

Articles published from 1985 forward are in both PDF and HTML format. Articles published prior to 1985 are available only in PDF format. All PDFs are searchable.
