Parts of PsycNET

PsycBOOKS—choose this database to find full-text books. Here you will find books published by APA, classic books from the 19th and 20th centuries, and entries from the Encyclopedia of Psychology. Searching this database allows you to find chapters from a variety of books.

 PsycARTICLES—select this database to find full-text journal articles in subject areas such as applied psychology, health, theory, research, social/personality, and more.

PsycCRITIQUES—use this database to find full-text reviews of books and films in psychology. Reviews can be an invaluable time-saving resource for instructors or other professionals. For example, when selecting books or films for classroom instruction, professors or librarians may want to read reviews in PsycCRITIQUES to narrow their selection rather than reviewing a number of books or films.

PsycEXTRA—use this gray literature database to find credible professional material disseminated outside of peer-reviewed journals. Here you will find resources such as conference papers, consumer brochures, and government reports published by organizations, societies, and government agencies.
