In Search of: The Updated PsycBOOKS

You may have noticed that we made some exciting changes to PsycBOOKS® in 2014:

  • The 12-month embargo on new APA publications has been eliminated.
  • The APA Handbooks in Psychology® Series is now included as part of the database.

The handbooks are useful for students who are looking for both overviews in a topic area and doing in-depth analysis in one of the subfields covered.

The APA Handbook of Forensic Psychology

The APA Handbook of Forensic Psychology

One recent addition to the handbook series is the two-volume APA Handbook of Forensic Psychology, which is an excellent resource for any discipline concerned with the scientific foundations and practical application of psychology to law, the practice of law, and law-related policy. Another resource that was added in fall of 2014 and that is certain to be useful to your students is the two-volume APA Handbook of Career Intervention.

An overview of PsycBOOKS is currently available on our YouTube channel (1 minute, 54 seconds).
