Tip: To use Pocket to save bookmarks to PEP-Web articles…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

 

The New PEP-Web Platform 2021 Beta has now launched!

May 6, 2021

New PEP-Web Interface  

Click here to access The New PEP-Web platform!

For the last three years PEP has been developing a modern new interface with many extra features and the capability for further feature development.  The development was necessitated by a commercial takeover of our existing provider who served us extraordinarily well for twenty years and have also been very helpful in the changeover.  

Its now available in Beta – meaning there may still be some rough edges and not all features are fully operational. Once the Beta phase has proved that everything works well enough, the existing platform will close.  

About the new PEP-Web 2021 Platform…

The new platform combines a set of interacting software developments written in open-source code. It is, therefore, available to other publishers to develop.   

The key thing to notice in this modern version is that there are improved search, browse and refine features, opportunities for personalisation so that users will be able to configure the colour scheme, type sizes, the language of instructions, etc., and to receive suggestions for articles fitting their search pattern. They will also be able save articles for later reading. You will not that users are offered expert picks of the day, a graphic of the day, a video selection of the day, etc. These new feature are designed to showcase PEP’s contents and to remind users of classic articles from across the field. Further features will follow. 

Please do try it out! You can provide feedback and report any errors you encounter using the “Help” icon on the top right corner.


The PEP-Web 2021 Release is Here!

January 23, 2021

This release provides another year of all current publications which move out of the publisher’s embargo period: subscribers will have access to the 2017 issues of current journals with three year embargoes, and 2015 issues of journals with five year embargoes.

This year, we have deferred adding any new journals because we have had a much bigger objective: a completely new PEP-Web platform!

Among many new features, the new PEP-Web will adapt to your browser size allowing you to take advantage of larger windows, while also providing better navigation and viewing on smaller windows, including mobile phones and tablets.  It will also have many personalization features, which will allow you to customize the organization of the information and the style settings of the interface.  You will be able to save favorites lists, as well as to keep a list of items you want to read later.  It will also, for the first time, have a multilingual interface: as we add new translations, you will be able to set in your preferences your choice of language for the user interface.  Of course, that doesn’t directly apply to the articles in PEP-Web.  They are still in the language in which they were published.  But as before, you can use the Google Chrome browser translation feature to automatically translate article content to any language Google supports.  Thankfully, the Google translation feature is “sticky” and can continue to automatically translate articles as you follow the links in PEP or otherwise switch between articles.

There are many more features, but we’ll save the list for our official announcement, which will come in the second quarter of 2021.  Stay tuned!  Meanwhile, a sneak preview of the new PEP-Web:

“My working definition of psychoanalysis is that it’s the disciplined study of whatever it is people do not want to know about themselves.”

(Warren S. Poland, Insights in Psychoanalysis)

It is with huge pleasure that we announce the launch of The Chinese Annual of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis. We believe that making the IJP more accessible to Chinese speakers is crucial to promoting the interchange between Anglophone and Chinese speaking psychoanalysts, and a significant step in further opening up the IJP to non-English speaking psychoanalysts.

The Chinese Annual is a Chinese translation of a selection of papers chosen from the International Journal of Psychoanalysis. Along with the IJP Annuals and IJP Open we hope that the Chinese Annual will help further international connections.

The PEP-Web 2020 Release is Here!

February 11, 2020

This release provides another year of all current publications which move out of the publisher’s embargo period: subscribers will have access to the 2016 issues of current journals with three year embargoes, and 2014 issues of journals with five year embargoes.

And we have added three new journals!

  • Psikanaliz Yazıları (Psychoanalytic Writings): 2000-current

Launched in 2000, Psychoanalytic Writings is the first Turkish-language periodical on psychoanalysis. It’s published biannually, in spring and autumn, by Istanbul Psychoanalytical Association, the first component society of IPA in Turkey and its region. Psychoanalytic Writings has played, and continues to play, an important role in promoting psychoanalysis in Turkey, and establishing ties between psychoanalysis and related disciplines. The Turkish-language journal publishes the articles of prominent psychoanalysts from Turkey and various other countries.

Psikanaliz Yazıları 2000 yılından bu yana Türkiye’de psikanaliz ile ilgili düzenli yayınlanan ilk süreli yayındır. İlkbahar ve sonbaharda olmak üzere yılda iki kez yayımlanmaktadır. Türkiye ve yakın coğrafyada,  IPA’ya doğrudan üye ilk dernek olan İstanbul Psikanaliz Derneği’nin psikanalizin tanınması, yayılması ve farklı disiplinlerle ilişkilenmesi çalışmalarında  önemli rol üstlenmiş olan Psikanaliz Yazıları, Türkiyeli yazarlar yanında  bir çok başka ülkeden değerli psikanalistlerin orijinal yazılarını da (Türkçe olarak) yayınlamış ve yayınlamaya devam etmektedir.

  • Psychoanalytic Books: 1990-1999

Joseph Reppen’s journal, Psychoanalytic Books, is a compendium of reviews of the important books of its era, the 1990’s, written by many of the best scholars in our field.

  • Revue française de psychanalyse: 1927-current

The leading French Journal since 1927 and a repository of many of the most important articles in our discipline. Check out the articles by Freud, Lacan, Green, Chasseguet-Smirgel, McDougall, Viderman and many many more. Thanks are due to Denys Ribas (Former editor and President SPP), the Paris Psychoanalytic Society and their library and librarians (SPP), Christine Mique-Bez and Charles Ruelle (Presses Universitaires de France).

Added to the introduction of Psyche in German and 27 volumes of the Revista de Psicoanálisis (1943-1970) published by the Argentinean Psychoanalytic Association, in our 2018 release, means that PEP-Web not only includes all the major journals in English but also the most important ones in the other major journals in the field whether published in French, German, Italian or Spanish or indeed in Greek, Romanian, or Turkish.

Note you can use the Google Chrome browser translation feature to automatically translate an article in any language and show it in PEP-Web in your native language.  Moreover, the translation feature is “sticky” and can continue to automatically translate articles as you follow the links in PEP or otherwise switch between articles.

About the PEP 2020 Release…

This new 2020 release of PEP-Web contains the complete text and illustrations of 78 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 149 publication years and contains the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2020. There are over 122 thousand articles and almost 18 thousand figures and illustrations that originally resided on 2458 volumes with over 1.1 million printed pages. In hard copy, the PEP Archive represents a stack of paper more than 361 feet high and weighing over 4 tons!

Announcing the PEP-Web 2019 Release!

January 22, 2019

We are very pleased to announce the 2019 release 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 2015 issues of current journals with three year embargoes, and 2013 issues of journals with five year embargoes.

New Articles

This year, we have added the German language Luzifer-Amor: Zeitschrift zur Geschichte der Psychoanalyse (LU-AM).  Luzifer-Amor is a German-language journal focused on the history of psychoanalysis,  which currently includes 31 volumes from 1988-2018.   


Improvements and New Features

We’ve continued to work to improve the precision of our links from references to PEP-Web articles.  In previous releases, our matching algorithms used heuristics to try to match references to articles, in order to match as many as possible even when the information in the reference is inexact.  From user feedback about these links, we’ve now constrained the matching algorithm with a conservative bias towards more precise matches.  This should help researchers who use the “Who Cited This” feature at the end of each article, producing a more accurate citation list.  However, since it can be useful to find an article closely related to a reference which isn’t currently in the PEP-Web Archive, last year we introduced a “Related” reference link.  The related reference link takes the user directly to a potentially related article, based on our automatic (heuristic) analysis of the reference.  This method gives readers a means to find a related article, but it may not be accurate, since the information in a bibliographic reference is limited and not always representative of the content of an article.  We’ve not only continued to refine the algorithms for the matching, but we’ve also done (and continue to do) manual checks on the links.

Last year we added the Original Article Downloads (PDF) feature.  As we mentioned, collecting 147 years of articles is no small task, and we have made significant additional progress in process of back-filling the library.  It can be difficult to get the originals in some cases…but we continue to work on this.  We keep adding to it over the course of the year, and expect to have nearly 80% of the originals in place by the end of this year.

Finally, last year we introduced the first version of PEP-Easy (pepeasy.pep-web.org), our web app for accessing PEP-Web from mobile devices.  It brings together most of your favorite PEP-Web features in an easy to use application which can outpace PEP-Web in presentation speed.  It allows you to easily read on your browser, as well as download articles in PDF and ePub format.  We’ve just come out with a minor upgrade to the app which broadens its use for users with institutional logins, supporting Federation Login, e.g., via OpenAthens.   And PEP-Easy now supports secure HTTP, via the URL https://pepeasy.pep-web.org

A Library of Premier Journals, Classic Books, and Videos

PEP-Web has over one million pages of online journals!  This new 2019 release of PEP-Web contains the complete text and illustrations of 74 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 148 publication years and contains the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2019. There are over 119 thousand articles and over 17.5 thousand figures and illustrations that originally resided on 2396 volumes with over 1 million printed pages. In hard copy, the PEP Archive represents a stack of paper more than 352 feet high and weighing over 4 tons!

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

We’ve worked to improve the precision of our links from references to PEP-Web articles.  In previous releases, our matching algorithms used heuristics to try to match references to articles, in order to match as many as possible even when the information in the reference is inexact.  From user feedback about these links, we’ve now constrained the matching algorithm with a conservative bias towards more precise matches.  This should help researchers who use the “Who Cited This” feature at the end of each article, producing a more accurate citation list.  However, since it can be useful to find an article closely related to a reference which isn’t currently in the PEP-Web Archive, we’ve created a new “Related” reference link.  The related reference link takes the user directly to a potentially related article, based on heuristic analysis of the reference.  This method gives readers a means to find a related article, but it can be inaccurate, since the information in a bibliographic reference is limited and not always representative of the content of an article.  Our implementation of this feature is very new and we will continue to refine it as the year progresses.


This year we introduce two new important features for PEP:

Original Article Downloads (PDF)

Our PDF download feature has now been enhanced to give users a choice between the PEP-Web rekeyed version of an article, and the original article format from the journal, with all the original formatting.  You can choose which type of PDF you want on an article-by-article basis, just by clicking the PDF Download button, which now works as a pull-down menu, selecting one of the two formats.

Collecting 147 years of articles is no small task, and while we are still in the process of backfilling the library, it already contains over 90 thousand original PDFs!  The Original PDFs show the actual page layout and formatting of the original publication.  To provide the originals, we collected a mix (by the nature of the age and rarity of some journals) of scanner and print-based PDFs (where scanner based PDFs contain “pictures” of the pages rather than being “text-based”).

PEP-Web for mobile devices

Also coinciding with the 2018 is the official release of our web app, PEP-Easy.  

Providing an interface more suited to smaller devices than PEP-Web, it brings together most of your favorite PEP-Web features in an easy to use application which can outpace PEP-Web in presentation speed.  It allows you to easily read on your browser, as well as download articles in PDF and ePub format.  The web app interface also has an internationalization feature that can be configured to display in Spanish or French.

The application is designed to make it quicker and easier to find an article on PEP-Web using mobile devices. You can do simple author and title searches or search full text using more advanced terms like on PEP-Web.  You can search and read abstracts without logging in, and you can set your login as persistent to read or download the full-text (or PDFs and ePubs) of articles.

And as a web app, you are always using the latest version.  PEP-Easy can be accessed at pepeasy.pep-web.org and will run on smart phones, tablets, and other small mobile devices running a current version of a standard mobile browser.  It even runs in your desktop browser!  Find out more here.
