Free Journal Access through BPS

Post by joanner » Tue May 17, 2011 9:15 pm

Make the most of this new resource for BPS members:

The BPS are running a trial period of 6 months with EBSCO that offers members access to a wide range of psychology and psychotherapy journals, as well as other areas. It officially started on May 1st. The society states that decision will be made at the end of the six months, based on user usage - essentially "use it or lose it".

http://www.bps.org.uk/ebsco

You can also access the BPS's own journals electronically now. BPS Members have access to all BPS Journals and a selection of other titles from Wiley-Blackwell.

This is really good and it would be such a shame to lose it! Please take a minute to hunt out a journal article, even if you don't need it, just to keep this excellent resource (if you don't appreciate it now, you will when you qualify or lose your uni access through another means).

So please, just get a journal article!

I've been meaning to post this for a while...

'I am also delightful to report that our trial of free access for members to journals via EBSCO has got off to a flying start with impressive usage statistics. Our 'use it or lose it' message appears to have got through and, with continued engagement at these levels, I am confident that Trustees will be happy to confirm this service to members for the long term.'
(Gerry Mulhorn, President's Column, The Psychologist, June 2011)


Good news; let's hope people keep using it as much as they have been recently, as it is such a great feature! :)

Free access to EBSCO online journals

Following a successful trial the Society has arranged for free member access to EBSCO’s Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection (PBSC) of online journals.

The collection comprises 567 titles indexed and abstracted, almost all of which are available for full-text download. The service is available immediately and is provided as an ongoing benefit for members.

To access the collection visit the EBSCO sign in webpage. If you are already signed in as a member on the Society site, this link takes you straight to the launch page for access to PBSC. Otherwise you will be invited to sign in first with your Society membership number and password.

This service is provided as part of the Society’s continuing programme of enhancing the benefits of membership.

That's brilliant. I hadn't realised that this was available through the BPS and was ruing my current lack of journal access, now that I have graduated. Thanks for the info.

It looks like the publisher involved in this has changed and so the link is now different:

Hi Toria,

I think that psychsource is a different resource only relevant to BPS/Wiley Journals. You can still access the Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection on EBSCOhost, which has a larger collection, using the link BlueCat kindly provided :)
BPS members currently have free online access to full-text journals:

All BPS journals via PsychSource
Selected Wiley-Blackwell journals via PsychSource
EBSCO Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection

Oops, sorry! There was me thinking I had finally tackled my lack of technology know-how, alas... :roll:

Thanks for the links Mark :)
