Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing (PEP)

Further Support

PEP-Web contains the premier journals and classic books in psychoanalysis. PEP-Web is updated annually every January with new books and journal titles, and current journal issues are added as they are published.

PEP Archive Version 2020 (1871-2020) is the latest annual release from February 2020.

Embargoed Content: Due to contracts with publishers, there is a three to five year embargo on most current content.  For the embargoed years, only abstracts and article summaries may be read on PEP-Web. However, the full text of all years is still completely searchable, making it easy to find relevant articles.  To see the list of journal embargo dates go here.

Customer Support, subscription, access, and login issues, etc:  Support for login and access issues is available depending on your type of subscription.  Click here for more information.

Reporting Data Errors: If you have discovered a data error – typing error, missing words, misspelled author name, missing articles etc., there’s an integrated reporting mechanism on PEP-Web.

  • If you find an error in an article or book or in a name listed in the Author index, especially with your own entries
    • Select the erroneous text in the article
    • Use the integrated PEP-Web “Report a Data Error” or “Feedback” forms.
    • The error text you selected, and the article location will already be loaded into the form.  Fill out the rest of the form and do so as fully as you can. PEP is very grateful for comments that help us to improve the quality of the database.
    • If there’s an error in authors names in the article itself, such that it differs on PEP-Web from the actual publication, please report it as a data error.
