How to publish in this journal



As the volume of literature in the fields of psychotherapy and psychosomatics continues to grow, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep abreast of new and important developments, and to have independent, critical views on key clinical issues concerned with assessment and treatment of mental disorders. Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics has progressively increased its reputation for independence, originality and methodological rigor. It has anticipated and developed new lines of research concerned with psychosomatic medicine, psychotherapy research and psychopharmacology. The journal features editorials and reviews on current and controversial issues; innovations in assessment and treatment; original investigations; literature updates; and a lively correspondence section. It has become a unique and vital reference to current research and practice, the home of innovative thinking at the interface between medical and behavioral sciences.

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.
