The information retrieval system for psychology, PubPsych1, now includes more than one million data sets. This sizable increase of data in March is due to the annual reload of the database, MEDLINE (National Library of Medicine, USA), and a new transfer from the database, NARCIS (Data Archiving and Networked Services, Netherlands).
As a result, more than 40,000 new data sets could be added. The annual update of the database Eric (Education Resources Information Center, USA) contributed additional data sets as well.
PubPsych, whose name is an allusion to the medical database, PubMed, includes records of psychological literature, tests, treatment programs, and research data. It is characterized by its high quality indexing and its international focus. For this reason, it is an essential addition to other information tools in psychology.
The information retrieval system is free of charge. It is a joint project of the Leibniz Institute for Psychology Information (ZPID), several European information organizations, and further partners.
The search interface is available in English, Spanish, French, and German. An improvement of the multilingual function is currently under development within the research project CLUBS (cross-lingual information retrieval)2.
