Constructivist approaches support the idea that mental structures such as cognition and perception are actively built by ones mind rather than passively acquired. However constructivist approaches vary in function of how much influence they attribute to constructions.Many assume a dualistic relationship between reality and constructed elements. They maintain that constructed mental structures gradually adapt to the structures of the real world e.g. Piaget. In this view perception is the pickup of information controlled by the mental structure that is constructed from earlier perceptions e.g. Neisser. This leads to the claim that mental structures are about learning sensorimotor contingencies e.g. ORegan.Others seek to avoid the dualistic position. Either they skeptically reject that the structures of the real world can be compared with mental ones independently of the senses through which the mental structures were constructed in the first place e.g. von Glasersfeld or they embrace a phenomenological perspective that considers perception as the grouping of experiential complexes e.g. Mach.All these approaches emphasize the primacy of the cognitive system e.g. Llins and its organizational closure e.g. von Foerster Maturana. Hence perceived patterns and regularities may be regarded as invariants of inborn cognitive operators e.g. Diettrich.Constructivist approaches can be said to differ also with respect to whether constructs are considered to populate the rationallinguistic e.g. von Glasersfeld Schmidt or the biologicalbodily enactivistembodied theories e.g. Varela.

SCImago SJR Rank

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.

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.

Constructivist Foundations

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
