POLANCO-CARRASCO, Roberto; GALLEGOS, Miguel; SALAS, Gonzalo  and  LOPEZ-LOPEZ, Wilson. Psychology Journals in Chile: history and current situation. Ter Psicol [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp.81-93. ISSN 0718-4808.

This article is a review of the historical and current state of the periodical scientific publications about psychology in Chile. In order to choose the journals, a search of these journals was made through the ISSN (International Standard Serial Number), which found 39 journals classified in the category of "psychology". From the total number of journals, 14 are still being published and half of them are indexed in databases such as Web of Science, Scopus, SciELO and Redalyc. Based on this analysis, it is possible to conclude that it is necessary to promote and enhance bibliometric and scienciometric indexes of journals, which will improve the indexing of psychology journals, and thus contribute to the improvement of the quality, visibility and impact of these magazines, both in Chile and the rest of Latin America.

Keywords : Psychology Journals; Psychology in Chile; History of Psychology; Editorial work; scientific communication.
