ARIZA M, Tania  and  GRANADOS, Reina. Bibliometric Analysis of the most relevant iberoamerican journals related to clinical and Health psychology of the Journal Citation Reports (2011). Ter Psicol [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.3, pp.89-102. ISSN 0718-4808.

Psychology journals are the benchmark of theoretical and methodological research. Therefore, the purpose of the current study consisted of conducting a bibliometric analysis of International Journal of Clinical and Health Psychology, Revista Argentina de Clínica Psicológica, Revista Latinoamericana de Psicopatología Fundamental, Salud Mental and Terapia Psicológica for the past five years. Content analysis of articles was based on indicators of the Journal Citation Reports (impact factor, immediacy index and number of citations) and bibliometric indicators (number of articles, authorship index, institutional affiliation, methodology, types of sample, general and specific themes and language of publication). Our results verify the characteristics of each journal and finally, it reflects on the positive aspects that should be maintained by the journals and the negative aspects that can be improved to achieve greater prestige.
