PsycCRITIQUES combines a weekly release of book and film reviews with a searchable database. Starting with Volume 50 in January 2005, the database replaced the print journal Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books. The weekly electronic release offers major enhancements, very current reviews, and much more content.

In each weekly release, PsycCRITIQUES delivers approximately 18–20 reviews of psychological books, most from the current copyright year. Each release also includes a review of a popular film from a psychological perspective. Other content includes videos, comparative reviews, and the occasional retrospective review.

APA published the final print issue of Contemporary Psychology in December 2004. PsycCRITIQUES includes all reviews published in the print journal from 1956 to 2004. It also includes several hundred reviews published electronically as a supplement in 2004.

Available on Ovid and SilverPlatter
