Recommended EZproxy Configuration for PsycNET

T (Title of the link) APA PsycNET
U (URL of the link)
D (domain, including the proxy)
D (each D can add another domain — see below)

The “D” tells the proxy server to continue facilitating requests for any domain ending in (technically, it could be others as well).


  • No outdated “cfm” or “http” access links: Using an old version of an APA PsycNet access link that contains “cfm” or “http” (e.g., within the proxy URL) may break the authentication path.
  • Current IP information: Be sure all IP address(es) used by your institution’s proxy server are appearing in your APA PsycNet Admin Center > Admin Tools section. Proxy access will be disrupted if the proxy IP list is incomplete. Use the APA Publishing Learning Commons site to email APA Databases Support with any IP updates (additions or deletions).
  • EZProxy version 6.1.12 or later: Earlier versions are incompatible with the TLS 1.2 protocol needed for access.
  • SSL configuration: Your EZproxy server must be configured for SSL. View the SSL configuration page on the OCLC help site for more information:
