For the fourth year in a row, Review of Educational Research (RER) is first in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), released in June. RER’s impact factor this year, 12.565, was its highest ever and more than 3 points higher than the second-place journal. Perhaps even more impressive, RER’s five-year impact factor of 18.742 was 5 points higher than its closest competitor.

JCR ranked journals by their 2020 impact factor, which is the total number of 2020 citations of each journal’s 2018 and 2019 articles, divided by the journal’s total number of articles published during those two years. AERA’s journals are included in the “Education and Educational Research” category, which now includes 264 peer-reviewed scholarly journals from around the world.

Review of Research in Education (RRE) and Educational Researcher (ER) appeared in the top 20. RRE was 12th in the rankings, with an impact factor of 5.179, and ER was 20th at 4.854. The American Educational Research Journal (AERJ) was next at 4.811 (22nd), followed by Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis (EEPA) at 3.347 (60th), Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics (JEBS) at 3.288 (62nd), and AERA Open at 2.299 (131st). This is AERA Open’s second year in the rankings.

JEBS also has rankings in the “Social Sciences, Mathematical Methods” (10/52) and the “Psychology, Mathematical” (4/13) categories. JEBS saw increases in the above rankings as well as in the overall “Education and Educational Research” category.
