What is the difference between PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES?


PsycINFO is a database that provides abstracts and citations to the research literature in the behavioral sciences and mental health. PsycINFO provides the indexing for more than 2500 journals, 99% of which are peer-reviewed. Included are citations and abstracts (summaries) of peer-reviewed journal articles, books, book chapters, dissertations, and technical reports. 

Although LHU Libraries provides linked full text to PsycInfo citations, not all article and book citations in PsychInfo are full-text. Please use the "Check Availability" option for finding out if LHU Libraries links to the full-text elsewhere. If you cannot locate the full text of an item, LHU Libraries provides a free interlibrary loan service .

PsycArticles is a database of full-text articles from journals published by the American Psychological Association and others. This database provides coverage and content for 100+ journals (1894 to the present).

  1. Does PsycInfo *include* PsycArticles? That is, are there any journals/articles in the latter which don't appear in the former? (and if not, what is the reason for the continued existence of the former)
