An agreement between EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and the American Psychological Association (APA) will bring rich APA content into EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). Metadata, including full-text searching, for three APA resources will be added to the EDS Base Index allowing the APA content to better impact searching through the EDS single search interface.

The APA resources included in the agreement are PsycARTICLES, PsycBOOKS, and PsycCRITIQUES. PsycARTICLES is a source of full-text, peer-reviewed scholarly and scientific articles in psychology. The database contains approximately 150,000 articles from more than 70 journals.

PsycBOOKS is a database of more than 30,000 chapters in PDF from nearly 2,000 books published by APA and other publishers. It also includes close to 1,500 classic books of landmark historical impact in psychology dating from the 1600s and the exclusive electronic release of more than 1,500 authored entries from the APA/Oxford University Press Encyclopedia of Psychology. Digitisation of the content from the Archives of the History of American Psychology (AHAP) collection adds more than 2,500 works of historical significance.

PsycCRITIQUES is a database of full-text book reviews featuring current scholarly and professional books in psychology. It also publishes reviews from a psychological perspective of popular films and trade books. PsycCRITIQUES includes approximately 40,000 reviews dating back to 1956.
