Note: The Association of College and Research Libraries' (ACRL) Education and Behavioral Sciences Section (EBSS) Psychology Committee has developed a database approach to ranking journals in psychology. This database analyzes psychology titles using citation metrics; useful for collection development or for general "rankings" of psychology journal titles based on citations metrics. Use alongside "Impact Factor" from "Journal Citation Reports" to "rank" journal titles in psychology.
