MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact factor of cognitive psychology journals indexed in the Science and Social Sciences edition of Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database over a period of 10 consecutive years. Cognitive psychology journals were indexed in 11 different subject categories of the database. Their mean impact factor ranged from 1.580 to 2.526. In relation to the subject categories of the Social Sciences edition, cognitive psychology journals were placed between the fourth and the sixth position for the years 2007-2009. Lower positions were observed in relation to the categories in the Science edition. Calculation of the intraclass correlation coefficient showed that cognitive psychology journals were relatively stable in the examined period.
