Announcing PEP Archive 1 Feature Release!
This release adds user interface improvements and new features to PEP. We’ve optimized the controls and heading space to give you more room for search results and article text. We’ve added a new PEP Tab, which includes a What’s New? feature, showing new material that’s been added; Top 5 Lists of what’s popular (most read) and what’s most cited by PEP source articles, along with access to thecomplete ranked statistics; and expanded search criteria to include language and the new statistics, where, for example, you can limit the results to articles which have been cited more than 5 times in the past 10 years. And perhaps most significantly, there’s a new glossary of psychoanalytic terms and concepts that can be accessed by clicking on the terms within any article!
The new PEP Tab has:
- What’s New. The last six issues or books that have been added to PEP-WEB in the past month. This new feature will serve to replace the data updates normally posted on PEP-Web News. Best of all, it will be much more timely, as the list is updated automatically when we add new data. We will continue to post major update information here though.
- Most Popular Journal Articles. A short summary list of the most widely accessed articles (or book chapters) on PEP-WEB. Much more detailed statistics (including books) are available from a link (See full statistics…) at the bottom of the summary list.
- Most Cited Journal Articles. A short summary of the most cited journal articles on PEP-WEB. Much more detailed statistics are available from a link (See full statistics…) at the bottom of the summary list. In the full statistics table, clicking on the number of ctations for a given article will show you a list of all articles which cited it during that time frame.
- Downloadable Statistics. When See full statistics… is used to view the table of statistics for Most Cited and Most Popular, the table can be downloaded in an Excel compatible format by using the “Export” link (menu) on the menu bar just above the table.
New “Consolidated Glossary”:
The PEP Consolidated Psychoanalytic Glossary is a compilation of terms, definitions, and discussion from major published psychoanalytic glossaries. With the glossary, PEP has integrated several of the key Psychoanalytic glossaries into a new document. In this initial implementation, in addition to the Language of Psychoanalysis (Laplanche and Pontalis), PEP has integrated three additional glossaries: the Edinburgh International Encyclopaedia of Psychoanalysis (Skelton), Glossary of Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts (Moore and Fine), and the Dictionary of Kleinian Thought (Hinshelwood). PEP has also integrated the EPF Glossary of Psychoanalysis in Europe (Junkers), which provides a mapping of each psychoanalytic term across several languages. See the PEP Consolidated Glossary Introduction for more info.
Terms from the glossary are hyperlinked from within articles in PEP. As you move your cursor over the text in any article terms will change color. A simple click brings up a pop-up window with the definitions and discussion from each of the glossaries together, providing a brief definition from the glossary sources in a single consolidated view. You can also click to open the complete consolidated glossary entry which has the complete content from all the sources.
The Glossary can be browsed directly by selecting PEP Consolidated Psychoanalytic Glossary from the “Glossaries and Dictionaries:” list in the Books Tab.
New PEP Bibliography Download Feature:
The new PEP Bibliography download feature allows you to download a database of bibliographic data for the articles that appear in PEP. The format is REFER, which can be imported into EndNote and other bibliography managers. The list is refreshed within 30 days after each major release of PEP (e.g., A1v9, A1v10, etc.)
To access this feature, click the new option “Download PEP Bibliography”, at the bottom of the PEP-WEB window.
