Journal Metrics


CYE seeks to strengthen connections between research and practice. Field reports, in particular, which reflect on lessons learned in the field and the challenging realities of practice, are of great interest to our readership. We value this contribution and remain dedicated to publishing a variety of papers. For this reason, a traditional scientometric impact factor, which is based on a count of all items published in an issue, fails to reflect the impact and influence of CYE research specifically. We are continuously considering new and innovative ways to accurately measure the impact of our research articles. We currently use Google Scholar to measure the citation impact.
