Cyberpsychology gained Impact Factor: 1.400
The two dominant academic journal databases, Web of Science (Thomson Reuters) and Scopus (Elsevier), released the journal citations record recently. Cyberpsychology's records show the journal is growing and gaining more attention from the academic community.
Web of Science
Articles from Cyberpsychology are included in Web Of Science Core Collection since 2015. This year, the journal received the Impact Factor for the first time with the excellent value of 1.400, placing the journal in the second quartile in its single category, Multidisciplinary Psychology. Regarding the journal's position among other academic journals published in the Czech Republic, Cyberpsychology is the second of journals included in Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) - the first one is Moravian Geographical Reports. Thus, Cyberpsychology is the first in the disciplines on which the journal focuses.
Cyberpsychology's history in Scopus is longer than in WoS - the journal is indexed there since 2011. The citation records thus show the journal's progress over several years - and it is clear that the journal is getting better and is being more recognized each year. The figure below displays the increasing values of the main SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) index (which is “a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article’”), the increasing total cites, and the citations per document. At the moment, the journal is in the first quartile in two categories, “Communication” and “Social Sciences (miscellaneous),” and in the second quartile in “Psychology (miscellaneous).” There are 218 journals from the Czech Republic in Scopus, and Cyberpsychology's SJR is the third across all fields and the first in social sciences.
