The PEP-Web Archive is the quintessential website for psychoanalytic scholarship, with the full text of 59 journals dating back to 1918, cross-linked to each other and full bibliographic references to external sources, and where a multi-source psychoanalytic glossary is a click away for any technical term.

96 Classic Psychoanalytic Books

The complete content of Sigmund Freud’s Standard Edition where each paragraph is cross-linked to the corresponding text in the German Freud Gesammelte Werke.  Including 96 books from classic authors such as Bion, Bowlby, Klein, Meltzer, Winnicott, and many more.

Full-Text Searchable Videos

A curated collection of archival video lectures and documentaries, now includes original videos sponsored by grants from PEP. All videos have full-text transcription allowing full-text search and direct access to any part of the video by clicking on the text.  More original content to come!

Peer Review Discussion

For the first time in the history of psychoanalytic journal publishing, you can view the development of working papers submitted to the International Journal of Psychoanalysis before peer review and selection. You are invited to join in a peer discussion of those papers and to see the reports of the formal reviewers

The PEP-Web 2020 Release is Here!

This release provides another year of all current publications which move out of the publisher’s embargo period: subscribers will have access to the 2016 issues of current journals with three year embargoes, and 2014 issues of journals with five year embargoes.

And we have added three new journals!

Psikanaliz Yazıları (Psychoanalytic Writings): 2000-current

Launched in 2000, Psychoanalytic Writings is the first Turkish-language periodical on psychoanalysis. It’s published biannually, in spring and autumn, by Istanbul Psychoanalytical Association, the first component society of IPA in Turkey and its region. Psychoanalytic Writings has played, and continues to play, an important role in promoting psychoanalysis in Turkey, and establishing ties between psychoanalysis and related disciplines. The Turkish-language journal publishes the articles of prominent psychoanalysts from Turkey and various other countries.

Psikanaliz Yazıları 2000 yılından bu yana Türkiye’de psikanaliz ile ilgili düzenli yayınlanan ilk süreli yayındır. İlkbahar ve sonbaharda olmak üzere yılda iki kez yayımlanmaktadır. Türkiye ve yakın coğrafyada,  IPA’ya doğrudan üye ilk dernek olan İstanbul Psikanaliz Derneği’nin psikanalizin tanınması, yayılması ve farklı disiplinlerle ilişkilenmesi çalışmalarında  önemli rol üstlenmiş olan Psikanaliz Yazıları, Türkiyeli yazarlar yanında  bir çok başka ülkeden değerli psikanalistlerin orijinal yazılarını da (Türkçe olarak) yayınlamış ve yayınlamaya devam etmektedir.

Psychoanalytic Books: 1990-1999

Joseph Reppen’s journal, Psychoanalytic Books, is a compendium of reviews of the important books of its era, the 1990’s, written by many of the best scholars in our field.

Revue française de psychanalyse: 1927-current

Tip: Understanding Rank

Rank refers to the search engine’s “best guess” as to the relevance of the result to the search you specified.  The exact method of ranking used varies a bit depending on the search.  In its most basic level, when you specify a single search term, rank looks at the density of the matches for the word in the document, and how close to the beginning of the document they appear as a measure of importance to the paper’s topic.
