The Psychology of Men and Masculinity (PMM), SPSMM’s journal, has a new impact factor for 2015. At 2.947, this impact factor means that PMM is now ranked 8th out of 62 journals in social psychology (top quartile of journals). ┬áThis impact factor is a large increase from 1.838 (in 2014) and 1.823 (in 2013).

The impact factor is a figure calculated from the average number of times an article from PMM is cited within the last two years. Other metrics suggests that readers have sustained interest in articles in PMM years after publication and readers are likely to cite articles once the articles are published (immediacy index). PMM continues to grow as an important source for broad-ranging scholarship in gender issues related to men and masculinities.
