I guess it's a mixture of reminding users that the APA produces the databases, strengthening the APA brand and highlighting that the databases are related to the APA output style for referencing.

Subject: [Eril-l] Renaming of PsycINFO on EBSCOhost platform

I was wondering if anyone knows who or what was behind the recent change in the EBSCOhost platform with the name used for PsycINFO. Until this past week, EBSCOhost presented it as "PsycINFO." Now, it's labeled "APA PscyInfo." A similar change was made to PsycARTICLES (APA PsycArticles) and presumably other APA databases that one can get on the EBSCOhost platform.

Was this change requested by APA? Is the change also present on other platforms where you can get PsycINFO (such as ProQuest)?
