Members can elect to search across either or both databases and are encouraged to set up a ‘My Research’ account within ProQuest to experience some of the advanced functionality of the service, such as research and journal alerts, emailed table of contents, and saved search histories. These facilities enable psychologists to keep informed of the latest research published in their field and contribute to their continued professional development. In addition, there is an extensive online Help facility for guidance. 

To create a ‘My Research’ account, please log into the APS website and select the yellow ‘Access databases’ button that will appear to the left beneath the ProQuest logo. From within the ProQuest website, you can then select the ‘My Research and Language Selection’ option (the person icon menu) from the top right of the ProQuest website and select ‘Sign into My Research’. You will then be provided with the option to create a My Research account or to sign in as an existing user.
