The Tenth Edition of the Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms marks three decades of dynamic growth for the American Psychological Association, for PsycINFO, and for the Thesaurus. The Thesaurus has an influential role in research because it reflects the most current trends found in the behavioral and social science literature. The Thesaurus can help authenticate the use of terms as they become accepted nomenclature.

This reference is the backbone of any research in psychology because it provides a rich source of concepts that can be used for the most precise search in the PsycINFO or PsycARTICLES electronic databases.
