SIOP Offers Members Exclusive Access to Thousands of EBSCO Publications and More!
Did you know that as a SIOP member you have access to a premier database of the publications, audio, and video files most highly sought after by members?
The SIOP Research Access service (SRA) makes three EBSCO Host research databases—Business Source Corporate, Psychology and Behavioral Science Collection, and SocIndex—as well as the SIOP Learning Center available exclusively to SIOP members at one low rate.
The EBSCO databases feature thousands of publications, including most that are highly sought after by SIOP's members, and the Learning Center features access to hundreds of audio and video files from previous SIOP Annual Conferences and Leading Edge Consortia.
SRA also gives you access through EBSCO to APA’s PsycARTICLES database, which includes all APA published journals plus those from the Canadian Psychological Association and English-language journals from Hogrefe Publishing Group, including the Journal of Personnel Psychology and the Journal of Applied Psychology (TIP: When searching in EBSCO, click the “Choose Databases” link to be sure you are searching the PsycARTICLES database). A complete list of EBSCO publications and Learning Center recordings available through the new SIOP Research Access service can be found on the publications index page.
Research databases have typically only been easily accessible by those working at universities, but making the EBSCO databases available to SIOP practitioners helps connect practitioners to the latest research findings they can incorporate into their practice. Although the chief beneficiaries of the EBSCO database access are practitioners, SIOP members at universities may also find the service beneficial. In addition, the Learning Center portion of the Research Access service has a broad appeal, as it offers original recorded content from SIOP’s various meetings and highlights research from SIOP members on numerous topics within the field of I-O psychology.
“This is one of the most valuable benefits ever offered to SIOP members,” said David Nershi, director of SIOP’s Administrative Office. “SIOP is continually looking to add greater value to our membership, and the EBCSO access included in the service is one more example of that.”
This SIOP Research Access service is now available to members at a cost of $50 annually, with a partial-year rate of $25 available to those subscribing between December 1 and February 28.*

Editor’s Note: Periodically, SIOP will post “SIOP Spotlight on…” about various features and services SIOP offers. These stories are beneficial for both new SIOP members, to introduce them to what SIOP offers, as well as current SIOP members, as a refresher on the wonderful benefits of belonging to the premier I-O psychology society. As always, questions about any of our services can be directed to the SIOP Administrative Office at (419) 353-0032 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Similar to the SIOP dues process, SIOP Research Access payments made between March 1 and April 30 will apply toward the upcoming year’s annual access. Unlike the dues process, Research Access service does not have a renewal grace period, meaning they end April 30 and are not extended through June.
