TORTOSA, Macarena; ALFARO, Elisa; MARTINEZ-BESTEIRO, Elvira  and  TORTOSA, Francisco. A socio-bibliometric analysis of the Clínica y Salud professional journal. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.1, pp.41-52.  Epub Nov 02, 2020. ISSN 2174-0550.

This article presents a bibliometric analysis of Clínica y Salud, a journal edited by the Spanish Association of Psychologists (COP), Madrid. A relational database was created to analyze different issues, such as authors, institutions, gender, subjects, and its impact on Web of Science databases. The results allow us to observe the increasing international cooperation and the existence of a small group of very productive authors, in collaboration groups close to the editorial team. The journal is also open to the professional world, including both freelancers and employed. Also, there is an institutional supporting axis that includes a small group of Spanish universities that links academy with foreign institutions, particularly Mexican, but also Asian, North American, Ibero-American and, of course, European institutions. Apart from Spanish, this journal uses English for its communicative tasks. There is a high presence of productive women (authors) with a good positioning in the order of signature and differential impact on the scientific community, also well represented in the Editorial Board. The journal topics show a major concern for methodology and evidence-based testing. The impact of its articles is relevant in journals located in WOS’ first quartiles.

Keywords : Psychology journals; Bibliometrics; COP’s journals; Strategic communication plan; Internationalization.
