PsycINFO Direct®

PsycINFO Direct® is an electronic bibliographic database that provides abstracts and citations to the scholarly literature in the behavioral sciences and mental health. The database includes material of relevance to psychologists and professionals in related fields such as psychiatry, management, business, education, social science, neuroscience, law, medicine, and social work.

Visit PsycINFO for more detailed information.

Please note: Because PsycINFO Direct is an abstract database, it does not have the full-text of the articles. Visit our Full Text Document Delivery page for more information on ways to get full-text.

Pricing and Access

PsycINFO Direct is available through APA's web site. For $11.95, you can search PsycINFO for a 24-hour period (e.g., from 7:00am to 7:00am the following day). There is no cost-per-record viewed, printed, or downloaded. So, whether you print 15 records or 150, the cost is the same.
