The PEP Archive
The Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing (PEP) Archive database is used to provide access to foundational psychodynamic texts for several classes, as well as for individually directed research.
Journals: The complete text and illustrations of 72 journals in psychoanalysis, spanning over 146 publication years and containing the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2017. There are 109,500 articles and over 15,400 figures and illustrations that originally resided on 2214 volumes with over 993,600 printed pages. In hard copy, the PEP Archive represents a stack of paper more than 325 feet high — taller than Big Ben — and weighing over 4 tons! PEP-Web 2017 also includes continuing weekly additions to IJP-Open, where you can view papers submitted to the International Journal of Psychoanalysis before peer review and before the process of development and selection, and participate in the discussion.
Note: The PEP archive maintains a 3-5 year embargo on some material, so it is recommended that you also become familiar with the libraries of your local public university (UCLA), where access to most, but not all, of the embargoed articles, plus many others, are available for public visitors.
Books: PEP-Web contains 100 classic psychoanalytic books, and the full text and Editorial notes of the 24 volumes of the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud as well as the 19 volume German Freud Standard Edition Gesammelte Werke.
Videos: PEP-Web partners with various psychoanalytic institutes to produce original video content, As of the end of 2017, over 80 videos on the field of psychoanalysis are part of the database. All videos are professionally transcribed and full-text indexed. So when you search the article database, you can also search all the videos.
