On-line intelligence and assessment literature database

Since 1994 I have been maintaining, and continually updating, a computerized database of literature (IAP Reference Database) selected because of its relevance to psychological assessment, theories of intelligence, measurement, and applied psychometric methods. All social and behavioral sciences journals listed in Current Contents are reviewed on a weekly basis and selected references are imported into the system. This has been occurring since 1994. The current database includes over 16,000 records.

This is a good database for locating contemporary literature in interest areas of this blog. If you want to receive the weekly "FYI" updates (that eventually are uploaded to the on-line DB 4-6 times a year), join the IAP CHC listserv. This listserv currently has 744 members.

As an example, I just completed a search using the phrase (with quotation marks) "working memory." 272 different references were returned. Below is a sample (the first five returned)

  • Conlin,J.A., Gathercole,S.E., and Adams,J.W. "Children's working memory: Investigating performance limitations in complex span tasks." Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 90, no. 4 (2005): 303-317.
  • Conway,A.R.A., Kane,M.J., Bunting,M.F., Hanbrick,D.Z., Wilhelm,O., and Engle,R.W. "Working memory span tasks: A methodological review and user's guide." Psychonomic Bulletin and Review (2005).
  • Fink,A. and Neubauer,A.C. "Individual differences in time estimation related to cognitive ability, speed of information processing and working memory." Intelligence 33, no. 1 (2005): 5-26.
  • Gathercole,S.E., Tiffany,C., Briscoe,J., and Thorn,A. "Developmental consequences of poor phonological short-term memory function in childhood: a longitudinal study." Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry 46, no. 6 (2005): 598-611.
  • Hall,M.D. and Blasko,D.G. "Attentional interference in judgments of musical timbre: Individual differences in working memory." Journal of General Psychology 132, no. 1 (2005): 94-112.
