APA Releases PsycARTICLES Historical Content to Partners

May 16, 2006

The American Psychological Association has released the 1894-1984 historical collection of APA journal articles to seven vendor partners. The collection of nearly 73,000 articles will add coverage of APA-published journals to Volume 1, Issue 1. The PsycARTICLES historical collection will likely appear first on APA PsycNET , APA's proprietary search platform for all five APA databases--PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, PsycEXTRA, PsycBOOKS, and PsycCRITIQUES--in early June. The seven vendor partners--CSA, EBSCO, Hogrefe Publishing Group, OCLC, Ovid, ProQuest, and ScienceDirect--will begin the process of loading the historical content into their PsycARTICLES implementations. As vendors announce expected dates for releasing the historical file to existing PsycARTICLES license sites, APA will post that information on the APA Librarian's Resource Center.
