The New PEP-Web! Try it on our test site … …

PEP-Web has been completely re-designed for ease of viewing, searching, and reading.  It now adjusts to your screen size, supporting phones and tablets, allows you to customize the information you see, and save to your preferences.  It has been designed for...

The PEP-Web 2021 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 2017 issues of current journals with three year embargoes, and 2015 issues of journals with five year embargoes.

This year, we have deferred adding any new journals because we have had a much bigger objective: a completely new PEP-Web platform!

Among many new features, the new PEP-Web will adapt to your browser size allowing you to take advantage of larger windows, while also providing better navigation and viewing on smaller windows, including mobile phones and tablets.  It will also have many personalization features, which will allow you to customize the organization of the information and the style settings of the interface.  You will be able to save favorites lists, as well as to keep a list of items you want to read later.  It will also, for the first time, have a multilingual interface: as we add new translations, you will be able to set in your preferences your choice of language for the user interface.  Of course, that doesn’t directly apply to the articles in PEP-Web.  They are still in the language in which they were published.  But as before, you can use the Google Chrome browser translation feature to automatically translate article content to any language Google supports.  Thankfully, the Google translation feature is “sticky” and can continue to automatically translate articles as you follow the links in PEP or otherwise switch between articles.

There are many more features, but we’ll save the list for our official announcement, which will come in the second quarter of 2021.  Stay tuned!  Meanwhile, a sneak preview of the new PEP-Web:

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.
