With the PsycINFO update in the spring, the grants and sponsorship information is now more robust.

We're pleased to report that with the PsycINFO® update in the spring, the grants and sponsorship information is now more robust. A major project in this year's reload was the fielding of grant and sponsorship data.

It is now possible to search — where the information was provided in the research — not only by the sponsor but also by grant number, recipient, country, and principal or junior investigator. Grant date, funding amount, recipient country and an "other details" field are also available.

Watch a brief tutorial demonstrating the issue's search scenario.
