Abstract
English
Spanish
The aim of the present study is to assess the scientific productivity in the area of forensic psychology in Spain. A total of 350 articles were gathered through a bibliographic search conducted in the main indexed databases, as well as in other specialized publications. Results showed a growing profile regarding productivity in this area. Author's productivity fitted Lotka's law and collaboration analysis showed that most of the documents included in this study are one-authored articles. However, co-authored articles signed by small groups of authors were also typical in this area. The analysis of journal's productivity showed the existence of a small group of very productive journals: Anuario de Psicología Jurídica and Psicopatología Clínical Legal y Forense. The present study describes, by means of the main bibliometric indicators, the scientific productivity in the area of forensic psychology, from its beginnings in Spain up to the present moment.
