"The Psychologist is the official monthly publication of The British Psychological Society. It serves as a forum for communication, discussion and debate on a range of psychological topics. We aim to publish the same kind of information normally found in academic journals, but in a form suitable for our wide-ranging non-specialist audience: The Psychologist is read by more than 47,000 Society members, and around 1,000 non-members (including many journalists). We welcome contributions from psychologists in all areas of the discipline, written in an informative and engaging style. Articles may provide a broad overview of a particular area or issue, review the literature, include some original research, discuss theory, or debate applied issues and practical and professional problems.

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.

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
