Connect to PsycINFO


PsycINFO provides access to international literature in psychology and related disciplines. The database is enriched with literature from an array of disciplines related to psychology such as psychiatry, education, business, medicine, nursing, pharmacology, law, linguistics, and social work.

PsycINFO is generally the starting point for research in the behavioral sciences as well as other related disciplines. Each year, APA looks for ways to enhance the researcher's experience with its databases. The annual reload provides the best opportunity to provide new ways to retrieve content, discover innovative and cutting-edge research, and increase the overall utility of the databases. A few of the key components of the 2012 reload include:

  • All current grant/sponsorship data, which is currently a free-text field, has been fielded to include sponsor name, recipient, grant/award/contract number, date, dollar amount, principal investigator, and additional information as necessary

  • A new identifier has been inserted into the current Tests and Measures field in PsycINFO, allowing the user to move seamlessly from a test in the Tests and Measures field to the test records in PsycTESTS

  • A new field has been created and PubMed ID numbers added to PsycINFO records.

  • The Term Finder (Thesaurus) has been updated with nearly 80 new terms, hierarchical changes, and scope note revisions

  • Number of users allowed

    PsycINFO allows an unlimited number of concurrent users
