PTSDpubs, formerly known as PILOTS, is a freely available, bibliographic database providing access to the worldwide literature on PTSD and other mental health consequences of traumatic events.

PTSDpubs has unique features that set it apart from other databases.  This database offers:

  • A custom PTSD and trauma focused thesaurus to help you create a precise search.  This 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 record in PTSDpubs lists all instruments used within the publication, and you can search for publications that use 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 and psychological trauma.  PTSDpubs does not limit its coverage to selected journals, but tries to include all relevant publications.
