American Psychological Association Joins Deep Web Technologies Vertical Search Portals

SANTA FE, N.M., Feb. 15, 2011 — The American Psychological Association (APA) recently announced that it has provided access to citations in its PsycARTICLES® and PsycBOOKS® databases through Deep Web Technologies' MedNar and BizNar search portals. PsycARTICLES is a database of full-text articles from journals published by the American Psychological Association, the APA Educational Publishing Foundation, the Canadian Psychological Association, and Hogrefe Publishing Group. PsycBOOKS is a full-text database of books and chapters from over 2,000 books published by APA and other distinguished publishers, and includes close to 1,500 classic books of landmark historical impact in psychology dating from the 1600s. MedNar ( and BizNar ( are, respectively, medical and business portals; they search the deep Web of quality documents that are largely inaccessible to Google, Yahoo!, and Bing, greatly facilitating research.

Deep Web Technologies developed MedNar and BizNar using state-of-the-art federated search technology that simultaneously searches dozens of quality databases in real time, aggregating, sorting, and ranking the results, promoting the most relevant ones to the top of the user's search results list. MedNar and BizNar each provide access to over 60 authoritative collections and each provides an alert capability that delivers new relevant results for users' queries via email every week.

Abe Lederman, founder and President of Deep Web Technologies, commented on the inclusion of the APA resources. "We've always prided ourselves on having the highest quality resources in our vertical search portals. APA's PsycARTICLES and PsycBOOKS databases are authoritative and complement perfectly our other collections. We're delighted with the collaboration."

Gary R. VandenBos, PhD, APA Publisher, commented on the partnership. "We are pleased to be working with Deep Web Technologies to render PsycARTICLES and PsycBOOKS searchable by MedNar and BizNar, and therefore making APA content discoverable alongside other prominent medical and business resources."
