Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin (RCB) publishes articles on rehabilitation counseling with a major emphasis on data-based research reports, although other types of contributions to professional knowledge in rehabilitation counseling will be considered. Examples include articles that explain an innovative technique or application, point/ counterpoint debates on a current controversy challenging the profession, or insightful essays on an important issue. Contributions of these kinds may be considered for a special section of RCB. Article topics cover a wide range—from ethical dilemmas related to counseling clients with HIV/AIDS to clinical problem solving in micro–case management.

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.
