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: PEP-Web has over one million pages of online journals! It contains the complete text and illustrations of 74 premier journals in psychoanalysis. It spans over 148 publication years and contains the full text of articles whose source ranges from 1871 through 2019. There are over 119 thousand articles and over 17.5 thousand figures and illustrations that originally resided on 2396 volumes with over 1 million printed pages. In hard copy, the PEP Archive represents a stack of paper more than 352 feet high and weighing over 4 tons!
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 to public visitors to view and print.
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.
