PsycTESTS database trial

JCU Library is trialling the American Psychology Association's (APA) PsycTESTS database until 27 November. PsycTESTS is a research database that provides access to psychological tests, measures, scales, surveys, and other assessments as well as descriptive information about the test and its development and administration. Go to the APA PsycTESTS webpage for more information about this database.

Accessing PsycTESTS, PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES:
  • No logins are required while using these databases on campus, however off campus users will be asked to authenticate with their jc username and password. 
  • Please note that PsycTESTS is running on the APA platform which also give access to PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES. Please deselect PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES to only search the PsycTESTS database.
  • PsycTESTS is also available via the trial of new online services webpage.
  • JCU Library has an ongoing subscription to the ProQuest platform which also provides access to PsycINFO and PsycARTICLES.

JCU Library can not guarantee access to PsycTESTS after the trial period. However heavy use between now and 27 November will support the case for including the database in the JCU Library online collection. We encourage you to take advantage of PsycTESTS, and to tell your friends!
