Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing (PEP)

We are very pleased to announce the release of the 2017 version of the PEP-Web Archive.  The annual release means that another year of the current publications move out of the publisher’s embargo period: subscribers now have access to the 2013 issues of current journals with three year embargoes, and 2011 issues of journals with five year embargoes. In addition, we’ve added over 43 thousand pages of new material!  Available immediately on PEP-Web, we have:

and coming soon…

  • Chinese Annual of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis (2017-)

and of course we’ve been adding many new videos to PEP-Web throughout the year–with a lot more to come.

We also want to call your attention to a new journal entry: Psychoanalysis, Self and Context.  This is a new name for the International Journal of Applied Psychoanalysis, beginning in 2017.  Because of the new name and banner, we’ve given it its own listing and it’s own Table of Volumes to preserve the history of the older issues.  The first issue is now part of PEP Current (with full-text search but you may only view abstracts during the standard 3 year embargo of new material).  Complete text of new material is available via the publisher site.

PEP-Web A Library of Premier Journals, Classic Books, and Videos

This new 2017 release of PEP-Web contains the complete text and illustrations of 72 premier journals in psychoanalysis, 100 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 146 publication years and contains the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2017. There are 109,500 articles and over 15,400 figures and illustrations that originally resided on 2214 volumes with over 993,600 printed pages. In hard copy, the PEP Archive represents a stack of paper more than 325 feet high — taller than Big Ben — and weighing over 4 tons!

PEP-Web 2017 includes new videos–we add videos throughout the year.    We now have 75 videos on PEP-Web and we have many new videos planned for 2017.  All videos are professionally transcribed and full-text indexed.  So when you search the article database, you can also search all the videos!

PEP-Web 2017 also includes continuing weekly additions to IJP-Open, where you can view papers submitted to the International Journal of Psychoanalysis before peer review and before the process of development and selection, and participate in the discussion.
