Summary This paper identifies and presents some characteristics of the psychology journals included in each of the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) categories in 2002. The study shows that most of the journals belong to the categories of Multidisciplinary Psychology (102) and Clinical Psychology (83). Their ranking is seen to vary depending on the category, and the same journal may occupy different positions in different JCR categories. Journals included in the categories of Biological Psychology, Experimental Psychology and Multidisciplinary Psychology had the highest impact factor (IF).

This paper studies the main characteristics of the citation indexes currently developed in Spain. The paper compares the impact
factors offered by Spanish citation indexes with the impact factor of Spanish journals also collected by the JCRs of the ISI
(SCI and SSCI) over a five-year period (2001–2005). Spanish journals published in English have higher impact factor scores
in the JCR databases of the ISI than in Spanish citation indexes.
