It includes full-text articles from all the major psychoanalytic journals, the entire Standard Edition of Freud, and some seminal texts and relevant newsletters. It is updated regularly to include all journal articles up to three years before the current date. As a member of Division 39 (regular member or affiliate) you are eligible to subscribe to the PEP-WEB for $60 a year. Affiliate membership is $95 a year.
