Publications and Communications Board: 2013 Annual Report

The Publications and Communications Board (P&C) and the Office of Publications and Databases (OPD) addressed challenges and opportunities surrounding changes in the scholarly publishing and current economic climates to finish the year meeting its publishing goals for electronic resources, books, videos, and journals.

Under the direction of the P&C Board and to fulfill APA's global mission of disseminating psychological science, the Office of Publications and Databases maintained a solid performance in terms of production and improved services for print and electronic alike. Total revenue for APA's core scholarly and professional publishing program (APA Journals, APA Books, Publication Manual, PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, PsycTESTS, PsycTHERAPY, PsycBOOKS, PsycEXTRA, PsycCRITIQUES, and the PsycNET platform) totaled approximately $80 million in 2013.

Highlights of P&C Board Actions

  • At the 2013 APA Annual Convention, the P&C Board contributed six programming hours. Programming included "How to Publish with APA Books," "How to Publish Your Manuscript," "How to Review a Manuscript," "Finding Tests and Measures: Using PsycTESTS," and "Writing with APA Style." The average attendance for main sessions was 75 people.

APA Databases

  • The APA PsycNET mobile app is now available for iPhone, iPad, and Android phone and tablets. The mobile version of APA PsycNET is a free, light version of the existing web platform, but acts similarly to the web version. Some of the features include basic search functionality, browse, citation finder, search results sorting and filtering, and the ability to save, email, and export search strategies and results.
  • APA PsycNET introduced some new features in 2013. First, citations can now be exported to Mendeley, a popular web-based reference manager and PDF organizer used by researchers and students. Second, across all the journals in PsycARTICLES the 25 most frequently downloaded articles are identified; plus for the individual journals, the 5 most frequently downloaded items are identified. Finally, some new social media icons have been added so that users can readily share links to APA PsycNET content on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Delicious.
  • During 2013, PsycINFO added 192,756 new records to the overall database. At the end of the year, the database contained 3,572,296 records. The PsycINFO database now contains more than 66 million cited references. Although the majority of them date from 2000, there are cited references dating back to 1920.
  • The number of journals covered by PsycINFO at the end of 2013 was 2,547. Thirty-five titles were added; a systematic review of covered journals also resulted in dropping 46 journal titles for non-receipt or irregular publication.
  • PsycARTICLES includes "Online First Publication" articles within 30 days after the accepted manuscripts have been received at APA. These articles have gone through the full production process, including author approval, and are lacking only assignment to a volume and issue. The P&C Board has designated these as "versions of record." More than 2,700 articles were released as Online First Publication between January and December. Approximately 3,000 articles "graduated" to bound issues. When the article is included in a bound issue, the original Online First PDF is replaced by a paginated PDF and HTML rendition, and a corrected PsycINFO record that includes volume, issue, pagination, and indexing is released.
  • PsycARTICLES added twelve new titles and nearly 14,500 articles in 2013. The number of articles numbered approximately 178,274 at the end of the year.
  • At the end of 2013 the number of tests to be found in the PsycTESTS database was 17,900. The total number of records rose to 19,650, and the percentage of full text tests was 76%. The number of commercial tests listed is now more than 800. The database is now available on four vendor platforms: APA PsycNET, EBSCOhost, Ovid Technologies, and ProQuest.
  • The PsycEXTRA database grew by approximately 38,400 records in 2013 and now contains 310,831 records. The database underwent a reload in April which enabled several new enhancements: (a) the addition of a Test and Measures field and a Grants/Sponsorship field to match PsycINFO; (b) DOIs for all records, which creates persistent linking for users; (c) enhanced abstracts with linkable "see cases"; (d) document identifiers for clinical trials, patents, technical reports, and legislation; (e) revised media types of video, audio, and interactive; and (f) the separation of Web Article and Blog document types.
  • APA continued to add both classic and APA books to PsycBOOKS. There are now nearly 1,000 APA books plus 2,772 classic books on psychology, including 80 books from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. At the end of the year, PsycBOOKS contained more than 3,700 books and 55,400 chapters.
  • PsycINFO staff continued to expand the use of social media to inform the world about APA's electronic databases and the APA PsycNET platform. They have posted regular comments on Facebook© and Twitter©. There are now 102 brief training videos posted to YouTube© with links on APA.org and Facebook. About 5 dozen podcasts are available as well. The APA PsycNET Twitter page. To view any of the videos, users can visit Tutorials on APA Databases or Facebook.
  • Grants/sponsorship data from all APA journal content was deposited with FundREF, a new service to standardize the capture and reporting of funding sources for published scholarly research. FundREF makes the funding data freely available to anyone via a specialized search interface on the CrossREF website. The FundREF service can provide researchers with leads to potential funders, help track where funding dollars are going, and provide greater transparency into R&D funding.
  • APA continued to expand its training program to support the databases on the various platforms with on-site training at conferences and multiple webinars weekly in addition to the video tutorials. By the end of the year, staff had provided training to more than 883 librarians, APA members, APA staff, and others. The librarians represented over 700 institutions.
  • The APA Library Advisory Council met twice in 2013. Among their discussion items were mapping publishing priorities in the research landscape, discovery services, library budgets, mobile delivery of APA content, distance learning, open access, the state of the library, flipped classrooms, e-book purchasing methodology, and library and IT mergers. Council members have provided OPD staff with vital input regarding product features, pricing strategies, training and education, institutional trends, and policies regarding usage of electronic products.
  • APA presented Stuart Moss, MLS, Library Director at the Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research (NKI) with the 2013 APA Award for Excellence in Librarianship. Mr. Moss was described as "a nexus for the research that is done at NKI" and was credited with transforming an "outdated, poorly organized library…into a modern library that provides an array of electronic services." He has served as a leader within professional organizations, published, developed a Family Resource Center for families in the surrounding community affected by mental illness and brain diseases, and researched and responded to inquiries from many outside of NKI. Since 2010 he has been a Research Assistant Professor in the New York University School of Medicine, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
  • PsycINFO indexed approximately 8,300 website pages in 2013 for APA.org. This effort included indexing a new microsite on educating the public about psychology, scheduled for release in January 2014.
