To access a glossary of psychoanalytic terms when reading an article, follow the steps below:
On the homepage: https://pep-web.org/ in the right-hand side panel there is an ‘Info Card’ labeled ‘Glossary Terms’.
To use this function: First, open an article so it is displayed in the central reading panel, then click on the ‘Glossary terms’ Info Card in the right-hand side panel. It will open and display a list of psychoanalytic terms that are to be found in the current article.
The glossary terms in the ‘Info card’ are hyperlinked – if you click on a word or term a pop-up window will open in the center of the screen showing the consolidated glossary entries for that particular term. Within the pop-up, other associated glossary terms are hyperlinked and will take you to their relevant glossary entries. To close the glossary and return to the article, in the pop-up window click on the ‘Close’ button or the ‘x’ in the top right corner.
If you cannot immediately see the ‘Glossary terms’ Info card in the right-hand side panel, please check your ‘Preferences’ settings. To do this, click on the ‘Person’ icon on the main top toolbar (to the right) and from the dropdown box that appears click on ‘Preferences’.
A menu box will appear in the center of the screen – on the right-hand side is a list of all the PEP ‘Info cards’ where you can select/unselect the button for ‘Glossary terms’. Remember to click ‘Done’ to confirm your selection.
If you are accessing PEP via an institutional subscription, you will need to register for a personal PEP account in order to have access to your own ‘Preferences’ settings. Find out more about registering for an account here.
Please note that when viewing articles, links to the glossary are now exclusively accessed via the ‘Glossary terms’ Info card in the right-hand side panel, to resolve a problem with selecting text.
