PsychiatryOnline Adds Several New Benefits
Psychiatric News
Volume 40 Number 21 page 5-5

PsychiatryOnline, a Web-based service of American Psychiatric Publishing Inc. (APPI), is enjoying dramatic growth in its first few months of existence.

In August alone PsychiatryOnline received just over 1 million hits, a 27 percent increase over the July figure, and there were about 406,000 page views, a 92 percent increase over July, according to Pam Harley, who directs APPI's e-publishing initiatives.

Harley expects that several new offerings recently added to PsychiatryOnline will spur interest even further.

From a revamped, user-friendly home-page, PsychiatryOnline subscribers can now take advantage of a Book of the Month feature that allows them to have one month of free electronic access to a featured book. October's title was Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and the New Biology of Mind by Nobel Prize—winning neuroscientist Eric Kandel, M.D.

This month subscribers have free access to Fatal Flaws: Navigating Destructive Relationships With People With Disorders of Personality and Character by Stuart Yudofsky, M.D.

In addition to the monthly book feature, each week PsychiatryOnline highlights new articles from APPI-published journals including the American Journal of Psychiatry, Psychiatric Services, Academic Psychiatry, Psychosomatics, and Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences. Access to all of these journals and to Psychiatric News is part of a PsychiatryOnline subscription. Further, the new sleep disorder codes in DSM-IV-TR are included in the PsychiatryOnline version of the diagnostic manual (Psychiatric News, September 2).

APA members can subscribe to PsychiatryOnline by choosing either the DSM premium package or the DSM premium-plus package. The former, which costs $229 ($129 for members-in-training), includes access to the DSM Library, APA practice guidelines, Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry, and the American Journal of Psychiatry and four other journals. The other package adds access to APPI e-books for PDAs; the member cost is $299 ($199 for members-in-training).
