How to publish in this journal


Ecological Psychology is the official journal of the International Society for Ecological Psychology. Membership in the society includes a subscription to the journal. The journal publishes theoretical, experimental and methodological articles that address the processes underlying behavior from an ecological point of view. The intent of the journal is to provide a forum for investigations that expand the boundaries of cognitive systems to include not only the brain but the body and the environment as well. Of particular interest are studies that illuminate perception, action and cognition in terms of the lawful dynamical principles that underlie the organization of nature at multiple scales. Articles from disciplinary domains beyond psychology are encouraged. Topics can include perception, control and coordination of action, cognition, neuroscience, communication, learning, development, and social perception and interaction, whether in humans or other species. In addition to basic research, contributions from applied fields (e.g., rehabilitation, sports, human factors, robotics, machine learning) and philosophy (e.g., ontology, epistemology) are also welcome.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
