Does stress affect the course of chronic disease? Are friendships and community activities vital to recovery after surgery? Are blood pressure measurements affected by where or how the test is taken? For over a quarter century, Behavioral Medicine has answered such questions by publishing well-written and researched articles about the mind-body relationship. Formerly known as the Journal of Human Stress, Behavioral Medicine is a quarterly, multidisciplinary journal that physicians, nurses, psychologists, and counselors will not want to miss. Three-part, state-of-the-art syntheses devoted to a single topic (disability in older adults, smoking, interpersonal violence) are published on occasion.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Behavioral Medicine

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
