- We have many exciting features coming in interrim releases this year!
These features add to PEP’s new and improved Mach III Enhanced Search Engine, enhanced by citation capacity, statistics of most cited and the most read PEP articles, and a powerful glossary of psychoanalytic terms integrated from four key Psychoanalytic Glossaries.
PEP is a digital archive of many of the major works of psychoanalysis. PEP Archive 1 version 12 (1871-2009), released in January 2013, contained the complete FULL TEXT of fifty premier psychoanalytic journals, an Update of one year of the Current PEP Archive Content, complete versions of ninety six classic psychoanalytic texts and all twenty-four volumes of the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, the German Freud Standard Edition, "Gesammelte Werke" and all the included Editorial Notes. Current Content (the past 3 years for most journals) is also available and fully searchable for the PEP Journals, but as per contracts with the publishers, is only available for reading at the abstract level.
Some very important and helpful search features are available to help you specify and refine searches to make sure you get to the article(s) you are looking for with the greatest efficiency and precision.
- Live Searching. PEP searches while you enter your search terms helping you to specify and refine searches to make sure you get to the article(s) you are looking for with the the greatest efficiency and precision.
- Word Wheel. As you type text in one of the search fields, words from articles that match what you've typed so far will be shown to you, and will continue to be refined as you type. This new feature will help you choose the best search terms.
- Live Search Statistics.. Instant feedback on your search criteria! As you enter criteria in the search fields, the number of matching documents for each field will be instantly shown, to help you see whether you have chosen search terms which will best pinpoint the results you want. Further, when you specify multiple fields of words and phrases in context (as well as authors or titles), the number of matches the combinations of these fields produce will be instantly shown as well. This instant feedback will help to tell you when you've specified "enough" to find what you're looking for -- so you don't have to sift through a large number of results. It will also tell you when you haven't found a specific article, which part of your search may have been too limiting.
- More Ways to Look at Statistics. We've added more criteria for filtering the statistic pages to let users limit results by author, journal, or title.
- Compatibility with Mobile Devices. PEP has changed the page design to allow mobile device scolling to work in a more device friendly manner. Now works with Android devices including the Amazon Kindle Fire!
- New Content Links to Publishers. For current articles only available as abstracts on PEP, we now support special direct links to the publishers where you can purchase subscriptions and reprints. This feature now includes links to Wiley journals, but now that the feature is in place, we will be gradually adding data to link to others as available.
- PEP-Web now works very well with popular tablets such as the iPad and the Kindle fire, and with the mobile devices we've tested. But we can't test them all...please let us know if you run into problems.
- The new PEP Bibliography download feature allows you to download a database of bibliographic data for the articles that appear in PEP. The format is REFER, which can be imported into EndNote and other bibliography managers. The list is refreshed within 30 days after each major release of PEP (e.g., A1v9, A1v10, etc.). To access this feature, click the new option "Download PEP Bibliography" at the bottom of the PEP-WEB window.
The PEP-Web interface optimizes the controls and heading space to give you more room for search results and article text. The new PEP Tab includes a What's New? feature showing new material that's been added, Top 5 Lists of what's popular (most read) and what's most cited by PEP source articles, along with access to the complete ranked statistics, and expanded search criteria to include language and the new statistics, where, for example, you can limit the results to articles which have been cited more than 5 times in the past 10 years. And perhaps most significantly, there's a new glossary of psychoanalytic terms and concepts that can be accessed by clicking on the terms within any article!
In the PEP Glossary’s initial implementation, in addition to the Language of Psychoanalysis (Laplanche and Pontalis), PEP will be offering three other Glossaries: The Edinburgh International Encyclopaedia of Psychoanalysis (Skelton), Glossary of Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts (Moore and Fine), and the Dictionary of Kleinian Thoughts (Hinshelwood). PEP has also included the Glossary of Psychoanalysis in Europe (Junkers), which provides a mapping of each psychoanalytic term across several languages. More glossaries are anticipated to be integrated as PEP obtains the rights.
PEP Archive 1 spans over 137 publication years and contains the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2008. There are approximately 75,000 articles and 8,728 figures and illustrations that originally resided on 1449 volumes with a total of over 650,000 printed pages.
