PsycTESTS (Ovid)

An extensive collection of psychological measures, scales, surveys, and other instruments essential to the research needs of professionals, students, and educators across the behavioral and social sciences.

Focused on a collection of instrumentation tools developed for research but not made commercially available, PsycTESTS helps researchers easily find scales and measures for their own use. PsycTESTS is an indispensable resource for researchers looking to conduct, create, or measure research in multiple fields of study. The database's coverage focuses on both published and unpublished tests developed by researchers but not made commercially available.

Each record includes a summary that describes the test, with its purpose; some history of its development; data on the scope of the test, test implementation, a high-level overview of the test's development, and reliability and validity data (when available).

Trial ends 3rd August, 2019.
