PTSD: National Center for PTSD
PTSDpubs database (formerly PILOTS) is a freely available, online database providing access to the worldwide literature on PTSD and other mental health consequences of exposure to traumatic events. It is produced by the National Center for PTSD.
PTSDpubs has unique features that set it apart from other databases. PTSDpubs offers:
- A custom PTSD and trauma focused thesaurus to help you create a precise search. PTSDpubs' unique thesaurus includes specific PTSD symptoms, like hypervigilance, as well as terms such as PTSD DSM-5 and PTSD (ICD-11) to help you search by diagnostic criteria.
- A detailed listing of tests and measures. Each PTSDpubs record lists all instruments used within the publication, and you can limit your search to a specific test or measure.
- A comprehensive range of publication types, including journal articles, books, reports, newsletters, and dissertations.
- Cross-disciplinary coverage of all publications relevant to PTSD. PTSDpubs does not limit its coverage to selected journals, and tries to include all relevant articles.
