Tutorial Thursday – Finding Preprint Articles in APA PsycNET

It’s Tutorial Thursday! In this series, we explore APA’s library of video tutorials available on the APA Publishing Training YouTube channel. Please feel free to link to or embed our videos in your library websites or LibGuides, course management systems, or other locations where students, faculty, and researchers will find them.

A new version of the tutorial How to Find Preprint Articles in APA PsycNET is available.

This short video starts with a brief description of preprint articles, including why they matter. Next, we’ll demonstrate how to access them and how to create an alert to stay current on upcoming preprints in your research area.

By the end of this video you will be able to:

  • Recognize the value of preprint articles.
  • Identify several ways preprint articles are referred to by databases and publishers.
  • Access preprint articles in APA PsycNET.
  • Create an alert in APA PsycNET to access forthcoming preprint articles.
