APA Databases at ALA MW Lunch & Learn 2018

  2. 2. APA Update - PsycCRITIQUES® • PsycCRITIQUES® was discontinued as December 31, 2017. • The full PsycCRITIQUES archived database is now available to the public through the Center for the History of Psychology at the University of Akron. • Please receive access here: • http://cdm15960.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/landingpage/collection/p15960coll21 • In addition, institutions with an active subscription to Portico have access to an archived version of the database. • Please contact your APA Sales Representative or email psycinfo@apa.org with any questions.
  3. 3. APA Update - OFPs • OFPs in PsycARTICLES® will have fully indexed records on all platforms starting February 2018. • In the past, you’d need to search by keyword to find OFPs in APA’s journals, since the records did not include index terms. • OFP (online first publication) articles are accepted by a journal but not yet assigned to a volume and issue. • This is a temporary status; between 1 month and 1 year later, the record is updated to “full publication” status, and any missing fields are completed.
