The Journal of Peasant Studies top in 'development' and 'anthropology' fields
The latest Journal Citation Report (JCR), which tracks the citations in 2018 for articles published in 2016 and 2017, has measured The Journal of Peasant Studies (JPS) Impact Factor at 4.754, putting the journal in first place in the 'Development Studies' and 'Anthropology' categories.
JPS has remained at the top of the JCR list for many years. This can be seen as a reflection of the growing sub-field of critical agrarian studies in the tradition of scholar-activism/engaged research and a reflection of a trend of a growing number of younger researchers who are excited about critical agrarian studies.
Edited by ISS professor, Jun Borras, many of the highly cited articles in JPS in recent years were written by PhD researchers, many of whom are conducting their studies at ISS.
