Overview

PsycCRITIQUES offers a searchable database of book reviews in psychology launched in September 2004. The database replaces the print journal Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, providing major enhancements, very current reviews, and much more content. In each weekly release, PsycCRITIQUES will deliver approximately 20 reviews of psychological books, most from the current copyright year.

The new database joins APA's family of research databases PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, PsycBOOKS.

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 chapter, which is available in HTML format. Each record also has a link to the Table of Contents (TOC) for the book in which the chapter is published.
