PsycTESTS Coming to EBSCOhost

EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and American Psychological Association (APA) expanded their partnership to allow PsycTESTS to be available via EBSCOhost. PsycTESTS is a one-of-a-kind database providing descriptive summaries, full text, and relevant citations on the development and assessment of tests and measures that can be used in research and teaching.

PsycTESTS serves as a repository for the full text (when available) of psychological tests and measures, as well as a source of structured information about tests of relevance to psychologists and professionals in related fields such as psychiatry, management, business, education, social science, neuroscience, law, medicine, and social work.

More than 7,000 master test profiles and more than 5,000 instances of actual tests or test items, dating from 1910, are currently included in PsycTESTS. Researchers using PsycTESTS are able to discover unpublished tests, tests developed by psychologists for which no source document has been located, and information about select published tests available from commercial publishers. PsycTESTS will be available via EBSCOhost in early July. 

PsycTESTS adds unique value to EBSCO’s collection of psychology databases. To see a full list of databases in this subject area, including detailed descriptions, visit http://www.ebscohost.com/academic/subjects/category/psychology.
