The Search Engine
Web and DVD searches
The PEP Archive provides much more than just an electronic duplication of a hard-copy journal.
In the PEP Archive you can find an article not only by author, title, journal, and year, but also by indicating any word or phrase that occurs in the article. For more precise searches, you can limit the search to a specific context such as a dream or a clinical dialog. Click here to find out more about using search terms with the PEP Archive.
In addition, when searching through the DVD version of the PEP Archive, the search engine has a thesaurus function that can automatically expand the search based on psychoanalytic concepts and terms - ensuring that you find all relevant articles, even if they use a variation of the terminology you are searching for. After finding the information, you can take advantage of the PEP Archive DVD's personalized study tools such as notes, highlights, and bookmarking.
Instead of going to a bookshelf to check a reference, you can instantly jump there or traverse the entire archive in seconds by simply clicking your mouse. With search speeds this fast, researchers can take their time developing their ideas as they navigate the literature.
Given such a complex and sophisticated search engine, PEP has designed its own specialized PEP-Help online manual. Click here to read it. After a 45-minute tutorial in the comfort of your own home, you will be searching, cutting, pasting, printing and more.
The PEP Archive DVD is accessed via a state-of-the-art search engine called Folio Views.
Meanwhile, the PEP Web archive is accessed by Folio Views' sister product LivePublish - offering much more power than is usual on the web.
