Impact Factor & Acceptance Rates

IMPACT FACTOR & ACCEPTANCE RATES

We are in the process of applying to various indexing organisations - like PubMed Central (PMC), Scopus, PsychInfo, and the Thompson-Reuters Social Science Citation Index - for proper professional recognition, so as to obtain an impact factor, based on the number of citations: so, please watch this space!

We currently have a regularly updated impact factor from International Scientific Indexing: (see here).
2.251 (2013-4); 2.679 (2014-5); 2,701 (2015-6); 2.729 (2016-7); 
2.783 (2017-8); 2.935 (2018-9); 3.095 (2019-20); 3.289 (2020-2021).

We have also received an Impact Factor of 5.993 (2020); 6.776 (2021) from the Eurasian Scientific Journal Index (see here).

We have also (Aug-2019) been accepted for valuation for an Impact Factor by JIFACTOR: see here


Acceptance Rates:
In addition, we have been asked to publish our acceptance rates: we now calculate these over a 2-year period: 
For 
2013-2015: The "2-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (7 articles rejected out of 63 published) was about 89% (88.89).
 
For 2014-2016:
 The "2-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (16 articles rejected out of 38 published) was about 58(57.89).
For 2015-2017: The "2-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (13 articles rejected out of 35 published) was about 63% (62.86).
For 2016-2018: The "2-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (4 articles rejected out of 36 published) was about 89% (88.89).
For
2017-2019: The "2-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (7 articles rejected out of 36 published) was about 81% (80.55).
For
2018-2020: The "2-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (13 articles rejected out of 36 published) was about 63% (62.86).
For 
2019-2021: The "2-year acceptance rate" over 9 issues (9 articles rejected out of XX published) was about 

These figures do not include the 2016 "Extra Special Issue" on Mindfulness. However, they do include several "Special Issues" where the submitted articles were specially selected for that issue, which means that the overall percentage acceptance rate is considerably higher than for an issue that contains independently submitted articles, where some articles will not have been accepted.
