I am thrilled to announce that the Journal of Contextual Behavioral Science (JCBS) received our first Clarivate Analytics (formerly of Thomson Reuters) Journal Impact Factor in the 2018 release of the Journal Citations Report. Our impact was estimated at 1.216, indicating that articles published by JCBS in 2015 and 2016 were cited an average of 1.2 times in 2017. To further contextualize, this puts JCBS 91st (28th percentile) amongst 127 Clinical Psychology journals (Web of Science’s designation for JCBS). The ten most highly cited articles that contributed to this impact are listed in the table below. I’m proud to note that it represents well the breadth and diversity of exceptional submissions we publish in JCBS.

 

Being assigned an Impact Factor is an important milestone that reflects not only the commitment of the JCBS Editorial Team, Editorial Board, ad-hoc reviewers, and authors to the highest quality research, but also the status of Contextual Behavioral Science (CBS) as a viable, productive, and meaningful scientific strategy. Together, these create a solid foundation for continuing to attract high quality submissions and further grow JCBS’ impact, initiatives for which JCBS’ Editorial Team and ACBS’ Publications Committee already have underway.

With this in mind, I encourage you to share this news with your colleagues, to consider JCBS as a home for your next manuscript, and to volunteer as a reviewer. To revisit the nature, scope and purpose of Contextual Behavioral Science, please see Hayes, Barnes-Holmes, and Wilson’s (2012) inaugural article (free to members of ACBS). Thank you for your support of JCBS so far.
