A Survey of Notable Recent Reference Books in Psychology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As a result of the ever increasing number of reference works published in the field of psychology, there is a growing need to determine which recent publications are noteworthy. Traditional paper review sources are inadequate, because of the time lag in publishing. In an effort to identify noteworthy reference titles, a search was conducted in the OCLC Worldcat database. By using the limit function to limit the results to reference works published after 1994, a list of recent reference works in psychology was generated. These titles were then examined individually, to determine the more notable ones worth acquiring.
