Supplement traditional peer-reviewed journals and professional books
The gray literature indexed in PsycEXTRA makes it a preferred source of innovative reports, ground-breaking conference papers, developing ideas, and more recent research than what is typically found in journals and books. When combined with conventional research materials, users gain vital insight across the spectrum of the behavioral and social sciences.
Stay up-to-date on the latest developments in psychology and interrelated fields
