NIE Journal Improves in Impact Factor

Thursday, 23 June 2016


NIE’s flagship journal the Asia Pacific Journal of Education (APJE) has achieved an impact factor of 0.531 in 2015. This is a new high for the journal and represents a 48 per cent increase from its 2014 impact factor of 0.359.

According to the 2015 Journal Citation Reports released by Thomson Reuters, APJE is now ranked 176 among 230 journals in the “education & educational research” category.

The impact factor is commonly used as a measure of the frequency with which the “average article” in a journal has been cited in a particular period. An impact factor of 0.531 means that the average article published between 2013 and 2014 was cited 0.531 times in 2015.

APJE was previously known as the Singapore Journal of Education. Since its relaunch as an international publication by Taylor & Francis in 2006, the journal has been seeing growth in readership and quality submissions over the years.

APJE is currently helmed by Lead Editor and NIE Director Professor Tan Oon Seng. He is assisted by Editors Professor Christine Goh, Dean of Office of Graduate Studies and Professional Learning, and Associate Professor Liu Woon Chia, Dean of Office of Teacher Education.
