The Communication Scale in Physical Education (ECEF) and the Avoidance Scale of Communication Barriers in Physical Education (EEBCEF), were designed and validated for this study. The intrinsic motivation was also measured. The results of the analysis of psychometric properties of the two new scales were appropriate, so it can initially be considered valid and reliable instruments. The linear regression analysis showed that the use of strategies to avoid communication barriers is the construct that greater predictive power seems to have on intrinsic motivation of students.

    ABSTRACT: International journals are considered more prestigious and with more quality than national ones, although the meaning of this had not been established until recently. Moreover, internationality has been used as a criterion to make important decisions, for example to assess the performance of scientists, universities, doctoral degree programs, and so on, without knowing the exact meaning of internationality. Thus, the current study uses the criteria of internationality established by a survey on more than 16,000 scientists from all over the world to create an Internationality Index of multidisciplinary psychology journals published in Ibero-America and included in the Web of Science. Results show that the most international journal is Revista Latinoamericana de Psicología, followed by The Spanish Journal of Psychology, Psicothema and Universitas Psychologica. All the journals fulfill the criteria for internationality and the study provides very important results which will allow its increase.
