New Thesaurus Terms for Searching APA PsycInfo (Winter 2022)

APA PsycInfo: The premier abstracting and indexing resource for behavioral and social science research

In January, APA added 44 new terms to its Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms® to provide more effective searching on current topics, including sport and exercise psychology, psychological testing, mental health, and COVID-19. This update, which includes 27 new cross-referenced terms and 22 revised scope notes, brings the total number of index terms in the Thesaurus to more than 10,000.

In order to provide current and accurate search terminology for emerging research, the winter update will be followed by two additional Thesaurus updates in 2022 — one in the spring (May) and another in the fall.
