NIE Journal Improves in Latest Impact Factor

Thursday, 29 March 2018

NIE’s flagship journal, Asia Pacific Journal of Education (APJE), achieved an impact factor of 0.785 in 2016. This is a new high for the journal and represents a 25 per cent increase from its 2015 impact factor of 0.531

According to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports recently released by Thomson Reuters at the end of 2017, APJE is now ranked 160 among 235 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 0.785 means that the average article published between 2013 and 2014 was cited 0.785 times in 2016.

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.
