Scope

The British Journal of Psychology publishes original research on all aspects of general psychology including cognition; health and clinical psychology; developmental, social and occupational psychology. For information on specific requirements, please view Author Guidelines. We attract a large number of international submissions each year which make major contributions across the range of psychology, particularly where the work has the following characteristics: articles or groups of articles dealing with topics which are of interest to researchers from more than one specialism; section of psychology or which address topics or issues at the interface between different specialisms or sections of psychology; articles or groups of articles which take different or contrasting methodological or theoretical approaches to a single topic; articles or groups of articles dealing with novel areas, theories or methodologies; integrative reviews, particularly where the review offers new analysis (e.g. meta-analysis), new theory or new implications for practice; articles or groups of articles dealing with the history of psychology; interdisciplinary work, where the contribution from, or to, psychological theory or practice is clear. It enjoys a wide international readership and features reports of empirical studies, critical reviews of the literature and theoretical contributions which aim to further our understanding of psychology. The journal additionally publishes a small number of invited articles by people who lead their field on a topic that provokes discussion. These articles include a short peer commentary.

SJR

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.
