The journal, which is the official publication of APA Division 32: The Society for Humanistic Psychology, publishes papers on a wide variety of theories, psychotherapies, and perspectives relating to humanistic psychology, as well as papers on qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research. Articles published in 2015 examined topics including the psychological aspects of singing, the ethics of attention, and an exploration of hallucinations as the amplification of negative emotions from a patient’s past.

New Terms Added to the PsycINFO Thesaurus

By Ian Galloway, Senior Vocabulary Development Specialist

We recently released an update to The Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, the source of the controlled vocabulary used in indexing PsycINFO and the other APA databases. All of the items included in APA databases – journal articles, books and book chapters, dissertations, and more – are represented by a record that is indexed, or tagged, with Index Terms from the Thesaurus. This allows someone searching a database to quickly find all of the items about a particular concept, such as Affirmative Therapy, Playfulness, or Transactional Leadership, no matter what terminology the authors used.

FAQ: PsycARTICLES & PsycINFO

One of our most frequently asked questions is one of the simplest to answer. The question? Are all the journals in PsycARTICLES® also indexed in PsycINFO®?

The answer is yes! All of the PsycARTICLES records are also in PsycINFO. That includes APA journals back to the first issue of publication (except for Rehabilitation Psychology, for which we begin coverage in 1972 at Volume 19), as well as records for the APA Educational Publishing Foundation, the Canadian Psychological Association, and Hogrefe Publishing Group, which also go back to the first issue in most cases.

Not only will you find the PsycARTICLES records in PsycINFO, you’ll also find records for all the content in PsycBOOKS® and PsycCRITIQUES®.
