Description of PsycINFO

Produced by the American Psychological Association, PsycINFO indexes journal articles, dissertations, reports, books, book chapters, and other scholarly documents. The definitive resource in psychology, it indexes literature from over 34 countries in more than 30 languages. Coverage is from 1872 - present.


PsycINFO is a tool (often referred to as an index) for finding material that has been published on various psychological topics. The index provides you with a citation and an abstract, but it does not provide full text. It is also important to note that the York University Libraries do not subscribe to all the material included in the index.
