PsycCRITIQUES

 
 

PsycCRITIQUES offers a searchable database of book reviews in psychology. The database replaces the print journal Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, providing major enhancements, very current reviews, and much more content. In each weekly release, PsycCRITIQUES delivers approximately 20 reviews of psychological books, most from the current copyright year.

The database can be searched in several ways, including by specifying keywords that may occur in the article title, abstract, or the full-text, or by author names and journal titles. Each retrieved record has a link to the corresponding full-text chapter, which is available in HTML format. Each record also has a link to the Table of Contents (TOC) for the book in which the chapter is published.

Sample Record
    Title Suffering, genetics, and extreme experiences.
    Author Leitner, Larry M.
    Source PsycCRITIQUES. Vol 54 (7), 2009, pp. [np]
    Electronic ISSN 1554-0138
    Descriptors Psychopathology* Psychosis* Society
    Abstract Reviews the book, Society and psychosis by Craig Morgan, Kwame McKenzie, and Paul Fearon (see record 2007-14724-000). In this volume provides a much-needed counterbalance to the current biochemical zeitgeist in psychopathology research. The editors believe that cutting-edge research into extreme experiences has reached the point where the social world is again being seriously studied as a causal factor. They have collected a set of short chapters dealing with several interrelated topics: theoretical and conceptual issues in researching and understanding the social world, social factors and the onset of psychosis, social factors and the outcome of psychosis, and a future-oriented section. Each of the chapters provides a well-written overview of some of the many social factors associated with receiving psychotic diagnoses. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)

    Classification, CL=

    PsycINFO classifications describe broad areas of the field of psychology. Each includes a 4-didgit code that, when sorted numerically, orders the categories hierarchically by subject area. All PsycINFO records are classified according to the most specific category applicable. The classification scheme is shown below.

    To search for a specific category, use either the word(s) or the code, e.g.:

    cl=(clinical psychology testing)
    CL=2224

    To search for everything in a hierarchy, truncate the code, e.g.: CL=22*

    (Note, for very large hierarchies, truncating may slow the search process.)

    Electronic ISSN, EI=

    All records in PsycCRITIQUES contain only one Electronic ISSN: 1554-0138. This includes the records of the Contemporary Psychology backfile. The ISSN for the Contemporary Psychology records are not indexed in PsycCRITIQUES.

    Format Availability, FA=

    Specifies the format types available for the source document. In PsycCRITIQUES, the value will always be Electronic.

    Format Covered, FC=

    Specifies the source document format type actually covered in the PsycINFO database. In PsycCRITIQUES, the value will always be Electronic.

    Location, LO=

    Location contains a standardized description of continents, regions, and country names, related to the content of the document. This field may contain multiple locations.

    To search a specific location, enter the word, e.g.:

    lo=(switzerland)

    Alternatively, use the browsable index and select from the location terms displayed there.

    Population contains a standardized description of specific populations related to the content of the document. These include: human, animal, male, female, inpatient, outpatient.

    To search a specific population, enter the word, e.g.:

    po=(female)

    Alternatively, use the browsable index and select from the population or age group terms displayed there.

    Age groups are indexed as follows:

    Childhood (birth-12 yrs)
    Neonatal ( birth-1 mo)
    Infancy (1-23 MO)
    Preschool Age (2-5 yrs)
    School Age (6-12 yrs)

    Thirties (30-39 yrs)
    Middle Age (40-64 yrs)
    Aged (65 yrs & older)
    Very Old (85 yrs & older)

    To search age groups, it is only necessary to use the name of the age group, e.g.:

    ae=(school age)

    Alternatively, use the browsable index and select from the population or age group terms displayed there.

    The Methodology field identifies the specific kind of methodology used in a research study. Methodology may contain the values listed below. American Psychological Association definitions of each methodology are available here.

    Clinical Case Study
    Empirical Study
    Experimental Replication
    Followup Study
    Longitudinal Study
    Prospective Study
    Retrospective Study
    Field Study
    Literature Review
    Mathematical Modeling
    Meta Analysis
    Nonclinical Case Study
    Qualitative Study
    Quantitative Study
    Treatment Outcome/Randomized Clinical Trial

    To search the Methodologies, enter the unique term, e.g.:

    me=(clinical case ctudy)

    Alternatively, use the browsable index and select from the methodology terms displayed there.

    Publication Type, PT=

    Identifies the general type of document. In PsycCRITIQUES, the two Publication Type values will always be Electronic Collection and Review.

    References, RE=

    Lists references published with journal articles, books, and book chapters.

    Comprehensive coverage of cited references began in 2001, but references appear from 1988 on. Additional retrospective references will be added to the database as they become available. All published references are included in the PsycINFO record, except those not referring to publications, those in non-Roman alphabets, and those that cause the character limit of PsycINFO records to be exceeded.

    The references appear in APA-style format, and therefore can be searched for any information that would be included in that particular citation style.

    Search for an author or authors, e.g.: re=(Ko)

    Search for a publication year, e.g.: re=(1989)

    Search for a specific publication, e.g.: re=(Behavioral Neuroscience)

    Search for a publisher, e.g.: re=(Cambridge University Press)

    When constructing your search strategy, please keep in mind the large size of the references field and the numerous citations that one references field could possibly contain. A search for a specific author and publication year in the references field could easily retrieve false hits. For example, a search for re=(costa and 1985) could retrieve the name Costa from citation number two and the 1985 publication date from citation number twelve.

    The use of proximity operators in your search strategy can help to eliminate false hits. Incorporate proximity operators into your search strategy to ensure that a search containing two or more separate data elements only retrieves relevant citations, e.g.: re=(Costa) within 12 (1985)

    Note: Since the references field can be quite large, it may take a longer period of time for your search results to be retrieved. To eliminate the references field from your search results, select "Full Record - Omit Refs" from the drop-down box of viewing formats in either the Quick Search or the Advanced Search.

    Reviewed Title, RT=

    Contains the title of the work being reviewed. This field is not displayed. However, the title of the work being reviewed is displayed in the Reviewed Work field.

    To search the Review Title, enter the title, e.g.:

    rt=(Scoring the Rorschach)

    Alternatively, use the Advanced Search screen. To do this, click on the Advanced Search tab. Enter the title in the boxe provided and select Reviewe Title from the pull down menu.

    Reviewed Work, RV=

    Contains information of a reviewed item. This field may contain the reviewed item's author(s), title, source, publication year, and more. Appears in journal article records only.

    Supplemental Data, SD=

    Contains supplemental data or other information found either appended to the print source or available on the Internet. May appear for all publication types. Some supplemental data values may be appended with "Available" or "Internet Available."

    Data types include the following:

      3-D Modeling Images
      Appendixes
      Audio
      Data Sets
      DVD/CD
      Tables and Figures
      Web Sites
      Video
      Workbook/Study Guide
      Other

    Tests & Measures, TM=

    Contains the names of published tests and measures mentioned in the source document. This field may contain multiple tests or measures.

    To search for a record containing a particular test or measure, enter the test or measure name, e.g.:

    tm=(wechsler intelligence scale for children)
