General Description:

The American Psychological Association (APA) currently offers four programs that provide international donations of APA-published and other journals to institutions that meet the APA's criteria (an institutional setting to make journals available, a demonstration of need, a demonstration of a commitment to maintain collections, a time limit for most donations and a reasonable geographic spread). While each of the programs operates independently, they are coordinated by the APA Office of International Affairs under the direction of the Journal Donations Review Committee (JDRC), a subcommittee of the APA Committee on International Relations in Psychology (CIRP).

Project Description:

International Complimentary Copies of APA Journals: the Office of Publications and Communications annually provides up to 30 complimentary three-year subscriptions to international institutions meeting the APA's qualifications. Donations are limited to a maximum of five subscriptions per institution. All APA journals are available for donation, except Psychological Abstracts. From 1993, the Office is also providing complimentary subscriptions of the American Psychologist and the Monitor to each national psychological society abroad.

APA/ICP Book and Journal Donation Program: the APA administers a clearinghouse for members of APA, the International Council of Psychologists and others who wish to donate collections of back issues of psychological journals and books to libraries and other institutions throughout the world.

APA Journal Donation Program: the Association makes funds available annually for journal subscription grants to postdoctoral foreign students trained in American and Canadian universities now residing in their countries of origin.

The Association also contributes subscriptions of APA journals through the AAAS to institutions in both subSaharan Africa and the former Soviet Union. An alternative contact is Marion Wood.

Materials offered: used books, current journal subscriptions, back runs of journals.
