PSYNDEX Database

PSYNDEX is the most comprehensive abstract database referencing psychological literature, audiovisual media, intervention programs, and tests from the German-speaking countries.

PSYNDEX contains two database segments: PSYNDEX Literature and Audiovisual Media with records of psychological publications from authors in the German-speaking countries, audiovisual media, and extensive descriptions of intervention programs; PSYNDEX Tests with descriptions of tests in use in the German-speaking countries.

Approximately 30% of the records are in English or have English abstracts. All records have English title translations, descriptors, classification categories, and key concepts (literature and audiovisual media records only), so even if you don't speak German, PSYNDEX is still a great research tool for you. The database is searchable in German and English.

Additional information about PSYNDEX can be found in the sections Literature1, Audiovisual Media2, Intervention Programs3, and Tests4.
