Mental Measurements Yearbook - Guidelines

Mental Measurements Yearbook is a compilation of information on English-language psychological tests. The purpose is to assist users in finding the most appropriate test for their needs, as well as providing a place for experts to review new tests.

The general format will include many similar elements to books, with a few differences. 

Notes:

  • Always spell out the edition number completely in the title.
  • Be sure to be clear of the distinction between a test and a review of a test. 
  • Oftentimes, the first instinct when citing online sources is to cite the database, but--as with journals without a DOI--use the publisher's URL in the citation.
  • If you have any questions, be sure to contact a librarian!
