What’s New!

As promised, we are going to be adding new features to PEP throughout 2015.

Today we rolled out a new feature to the IJPOpen Table of Contents where you can change the default presentation order from Section (category) based, to sort instead by the Most Recent articles first, or the articles with the Most Recent Comments first.  Since IJPOpen is generally updated weekly and comments can be added any time, this will make it very easy to see what’s new!

Just use the “Sort By” pull down menu in the gray information area above the journal to select the sort order.  The sort order is retained for the current session or until you change it again.

Of course, don’t forget you can also keep up with what’s new by signing up for New Article Alerts and New Comments Alerts!

  • New Article Alerts: IJPOpen subscribers receive automatic email alerts whenever new articles are added.
  • New Comments Alerts: To receive an email alert whenever a paper gets a new comment, click on the paper, scroll to the bottom of the page (at the end of the comments) and click “Subscribe”.

New Article Alerts can also be set up so you can be notified of PEP Journal updates as well.

And lastly, don’t forget to check the What’s New section of the PEP Tab for general information on what journal issues have been added most recently.

Announcing the PEP-Web 2015 Release!

We have great things in store for you this year!  There are lots of exciting new features planned, and rather than our traditional schedule of a data release in January, and a midyear “all-at-once” feature release, we will be starting a new continuous improvement schedule, where we will be adding new features throughout the year.

First, let’s start by announcing the new content that’s been added to PEP-Web for 2015.

  • Two new journals:
    • Jahrbuch der Psychoanalyse (1964 – current)
    • DIVISION/Review (2011 – current)
    • And a PEP Exclusive:
      • International Journal of Psychoanalysis en Espanol (new, first issue coming in March 2015)
  • Full text access to another year of current data
    • 2011 issues now available for most PEP journals (most have a 3 year publication embargo)
    • 2009 issues now available for American Imago and Psyche (these have a 5 year publication embargo)
  • New Videos Added (we add these as they become available)
    • The first of the 2013 PEP Grant videos, “Black Psychoanalysts Speak” debuted in December

This new version of PEP-Web contains the complete text and illustrations of 58 premier journals in psychoanalysis, 96 classic psychoanalytic books, and the full text and Editorial notes of the 24 volumes of the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud as well as the 19 volume German Freud Standard Edition Gesammelte Werke.  It spans over 144 publication years and contains the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2015. There are over 97 thousand articles and over 13 thousand figures and illustrations that originally resided on 1956 volumes with over 892 thousand printed pages. In hard copy, the PEP Archive represents a stack of paper more than 292 feet high and weighing over 4.0 tons!

A Sample of the New Features and Upgrades in this version and planned in the coming weeks:

  • New Video Tab Design: We are making the video navigation better, with an easy to access integrated list of videos from all the videostreams, and a new bibliographic style view.
  • New Offsite Articles Feature:  You will soon notice a new source option on the search form “Articles of Interest on the Web”.  When you do a search, the results may include hand picked articles that aren’t available on PEP-Web.  Selecting one of these articles from the results will open a window with the external website loaded at the point of access or purchase of the article.
  • New Tip feature: Soon there will be a tip of the day feature to help you learn and use PEP-Web more efficiently.
  • Tutorials: We are working on new tutorials to help you use PEP-Web more effectively.
  • New “slide up” Freud SE/GW translations:  Rather than the current popups, hovering now allows the translation to slide up from the bottom of the screen, which makes it easier to select text and copy/paste from these documents.  Also, we have a new option to turn off the translation feature when you are not interested in seeing the translations.
  • Improved print formatting:  Print formatting has been improved, and the coming offline features will offer additional ways to obtain a more traditional printed copy.
  • Improved author index: The index will using full author first and last name to make it more precise when you select an author to view.
  • A new sorting option for articles in IJP Open:  Makes it easy to browse the newest articles.
  • Offline viewing options: we are working on several new ways to read PEP-Web articles when you are offline!
  • Better support for mobile devices: Better formatting and support for Touch Icons so you can save an icon on your mobile device desktop with the beautiful new PEP Logo and jump right to PEP from your home screen.  Also we will be working to improve formatting and display on mobile devices.

The PEP Archive is available 24×7 from any location. We support Open-URL and a number of authentication standards, making it easy to integrate into your own on-line library resources (see PEP Help for more info).

New Feature: Email Alerts for New Content!

You can now sign up to be automatically notified by email whenever new content is added to PEP-Web.  Just click here and provide the email address where you want alerts to be sent, and select the content for which you’d like alerts.  We’ll send an email listing the new articles that were added…and provide direct links to them as well!

IJP Open subscribers are automatically signed up for new article alerts for IJP Open.  You can click here to turn off or otherwise change your alerts (e.g., to add alerts for other PEP-Web articles).

Besides the link in this post, you can always look under “What’s New “on the PEP tab to link to the PEP-Web Alerts subscription page, where you can add to or remove your subscriptions.

PEP-Web Tip: What’s New?

The “What’s new” section on the left side of PEP-Web shows the latest additions to PEP-Web.  New data is added, as available, towards the end of every week (late Thursday or Friday).

So, for example, this week we’ve added:

  • Brit. J. Psychother., Vol 29, 2013, Issues 1-4 and Vol 30, 2014, Issue 1. [see Note 1] [see Note 2]
  • J. Anal. Psychol., Vol 82, 2013, Issues 1 and 2. [see Note 1]
  • Studies in Gender and Sexuality, Vol 14, 2014, Issue 1. [see Note 1]
  • IJP Open – four new articles added [complete text available]

as well as a few added last Friday after the update:

  • Int. J. Psychoanal. Self Psychol. Vol 8, 2013, Issue 4 [see Note 1]
  • Psychoanal. Soc. Work Vol 20, 2013, Issue 2 [see Note 1]

[Note 1].  Since these are current content, due to contractual restrictions, only tables of contents and abstracts are available.

[Note 2].  To make sure as much as possible is covered, what’s new will only show the last new issue of any particular journal (so even if there’s more than one issue that arrives, you’ll only see the last.)

Announcing PEP Web Version 14!

New PEP-Web Release!  Version 14 (for 2014) adds significant features and data!  This new version of PEP-Web contains the complete text and illustrations of 56 premier journals in psychoanalysis, 96 classic psychoanalytic books, and the full text and Editorial notes of the 24 volumes of the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud as well as the 19 volume German Freud Standard Edition Gesammelte Werke.  It spans over 143 publication years and contains the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2014. There are over 94 thousand articles and 12 thousand figures and illustrations that originally resided on over 1800 volumes with over 850 thousand printed pages. In hard copy, the PEP Archive represents a stack of paper more than 279 feet high and weighing over 3.8 tons!

The PEP Archive is available 24×7 from any location. We support Open-URL and a number of authentication standards, making it easy to integrate into your own on-line library resources (see PEP Help for more info).

Great News! We’ve added Psyche – Zeitschrift für Psychoanalyse (1947-2013)

PEP has, in an interim release (v13), added the complete contents (67 volumes) of the German language journal Psyche – Zeitschrift für Psychoanalyse to PEP Archive (1947-2013). Note that users of the Google Chrome browser can get translations of articles simply by right clicking and selecting “Translate to…”.

Due to contractual obligations, Psyche has a 5 year embargo, so the full text of articles from 1947 through 2007 is available to PEP Archive subscribers. Articles from 2008 and after are full-text searchable but shown on PEP-Web as abstracts only. To obtain complete articles and issues from 2008 through the latest issue, please go to the Klett-Cotta Website where PDFs of the articles or issues can be purchased.

Psyche appears thanks to a private benefactor and TROUT whose mission is to broaden access to the German psychoanalytic literature through PEP.

New Feature – Video now available on PEP-Web

We have now added video capabilities to PEP-Web, and have also added the first batch of videos!  We treat videos like articles, and organize them into videostreams, which are like video journals.  Best of all, the dialog for each video is transcribed, so the full text of each video can be searched just like any other article on PEP-Web, and you can access any point of the video by selecting the corresponding text in the video widget.

The initial release of the PEP Videostream is very limited in content.  The platform is now in place, however, and we will be looking to bring together and preserve all existing audio visual material of interest and relevance to psychoanalytic thinking, practice and research, as well as to encourage the creation of new material.  As a result, we expect the available material to grow rapidly and for the video archive to become a valuable resource for research, study and teaching.  You can read the entire press release for PEP’s new video feature here, and find out more about contributing videos. There is $100,000 dollars available for grants to make videos about Psychoanalytic Practice and Thinking!
