GONZALEZ SALA, Francisco  and  OSCA-LLUCH, Julia. Relationship of Developmental Psychology with Health in the scientific journals of the WoS and Scopus. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.1, pp.34-41. ISSN 1989-3809.

This study used journals in the Development Psychology category of the WoS service and Scopus database to investigate whether there is an association between developmental psychology and health. We analysed 291 journals in the Developmental Psychology category of the JCR (SSCI) and the SJCR. In total, 21.7% of the WoS Developmental Psychology journals and 16.1% of the Scopus journals are also classified in health-related areas such as Clinical Psychology, Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis Psychology, Pediatrics, and Rehabilitation. The Clinical Psychology category has the highest representation, with 20.3% of journals in the JCR (SSCI) and 10.1% of journals in the SJCR. The results suggest that there is an association between developmental psychology (normative and non-normative) and the field of health. This association should to be taken into consideration when planning the health pathway of psychology degrees that qualify individuals to access Masters degrees in General Health Psychology.
