EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and the American Psychological Association have signed an agreement that will enable PsycTESTS™ to be accessible via EBSCOhost®, the most-used for-fee electronic resource in libraries around the world.

Updated monthly, PsycTESTS includes unpublished tests, tests developed by psychologists for which no source document has been located, and information about published tests available from commercial publishers.
Researchers in all fields of psychology will benefit from the diverse array of subject areas and types of tests covered in PsycTESTS including:
- Developmental Measures
- Scales for Beliefs, Relationships, or Expectancies
