Publishing international research on rural politics and developments, and on the social structure of peasants, rural labourers and migrant workers, JPS has seen its impact factor rise to 6.4 from its previous score of 5.1. The journal's 5-year impact factor is 7.2.
The impact factor is a measure of the extent to which articles appearing in the journal are cited.
