Review by:
Sydney E. Pulver

For anyone with a serious interest in psychoanalysis, this CD-ROM is indispensable. The PEP (Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing) Archive, version 3, contains all of the articles published between 1920 and 1998 in the following journals: Contemp. Psychoanal. (vols. 1-34: 1964-1998); Int. Rev. Psycho-Anal. (vols. 1-19: 1974-1992); Int. J. Psycho-Anal. (vols. 1-79: 1920-1998); J. Amer. Psychoanal. Assn. (vols. 1-46: 1953-1998); Psychoanal. Dial. (vols. 1-8: 1991-1998); Psychoanal. Inq. (vols. 1-18: 1981-1998); Psychoanal. Q. (vols. 1-67: 1932-1998); and Psychoanal. St. Child (vols. 1-53: 1945-1998).

The disc makes available nearly the entirety of the psychoanalytic periodical literature; even books are accessible indirectly through the book reviews contained on the PEP CD. The Standard Edition is not yet included, but Freud's work after 1920 appears in English as it was originally published in the International Journal and the Quarterly. All of this rich content can be accessed through a sophisticated search engine, which enables one to search everything on the CD-ROM in a variety of ways. The state-of-the-art disc truly revolutionizes the approach to the psychoanalytic literature. Gone are the hours of library searches, photocopying, and attempting to obtain articles that no one seems to have. Gone is the frustration of finding out after all this work that someone else has already written on your topic, only better. (Of course, we may still find that out—or that something has not been written about enough—but with less waste of time.)

As well as for facilitating research, the disc is invaluable for supervision.
