Geographic Terms for PsycFirst and PsycInfo

 

These are the Geographic Cluster Terms as they appeared in the 8th edition
(1997) of the Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms.  This is the
Thesaurus used by the PsycFirst and PsycInfo databases.  Please note that
many countries have changed names since 1997, so you may need to update
this list accordingly.  For example, if you wanted to search for studies
conducted in Russia, you would search for both the current name of the
country "Russia," as well as the old name "Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics."
