New impact factor for “my” journal

As the editor in chief I am proud to announce that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy has a new impact factor.

Last year the impact factor (IF) was IF=4.413.

New the new number is; IF=5.761.

This is a good value considering the hard competition from other journals such as Behaviour Research and Therapy (IF=4.5) and Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology (IF=5.3).

CBT is now top 12 of 131 journals within the field of “Psychology, Clinical subject category”.
