Purpose and Scope

The goal of the PILOTS Database is to include citations to all literature on PTSD and other mental health sequelae of traumatic events, without disciplinary, linguistic, or geographical limitations, and to offer both current and retrospective coverage.

At the end of March 2017, there were over 57,000 references in the database. The database is updated monthly, and links to full text articles are included for over 58% of citations, including all National Center for PTSD-authored articles.

Addition of Publications to the PILOTS Database

We encourage you to send copies of your publications to us so that we might index them in the PILOTS Database. While we are unable to include unpublished conference presentations or to index published articles from manuscript copy, we are eager to obtain publications from obscure as well as well-known journals, books, book chapters, pamphlets, technical reports, and materials in all languages.
