Research Categories


Canadian Psychology has a mandate to present generalist articles in areas of theory, research, and practice that are potentially of interest to a broad cross-section of psychologists. Manuscripts with direct relevance to the context of Canadian psychology are also appropriate for submission. Original, empirical contributions are not within the mandate of the journal, unless the research is of direct relevance to the discipline as a whole (e.g., a survey of psychologists about the future of the discipline).

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.

Canadian Psychology

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
