Scope Assessment publishes articles advancing clinical assessment science and practice. The emphasis of this journal is on publication of information of relevance to the use of assessment measures, including test development, validation, and interpretation practices. The scope of the journal includes research that can inform assessment practices in mental health, forensic, medical, and other applied settings. Papers that focus on the assessment of cognitive and neuropsychological functioning, personality, and psychopathology are invited. Most papers published in Assessment report the results of original empirical research, however integrative review articles and scholarly case studies will also be considered. Papers focusing on a) new assessment methodologies and techniques for both researchers and practitioners, b) how assessment methods and research informs understanding of major issues in clinical psychology such as the structure, classification, and mechanisms of psychopathology, and c) multi-method assessment research and the integration of assessment methods in research and practice are of particular interest. The journal also encourages submissions introducing useful, novel, and non-redundant instruments or demonstrating how existing instruments have applicability in new research or applied contexts. All submissions should provide strong rationales for their efforts and articulate important implications for assessment science and/or practice.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of 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 It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
