The TWU Libraries' database PsycCRITIQUES is a searchable database of book reviews in psychology launched in September 2004. The database replaced the print journal Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books , providing major enhancements, current reviews, and much more content. In each weekly release, PsycCRITIQUES delivers approximately 20 reviews of psychology books, most from the current copyright year. In addition to new reviews, the database contains book reviews previously published in Contemporary Psychology back to 1995.
There are three ways to access information: (1) view the weekly releases; (2) browse by author/editor, book/film title, or publication year; (3) perform a standard database search. PsycCRITIQUES is indexed using the same vocabulary and codes used in PsycINFO.
