The ScintillationYieldFactor, like any of the other input parameters for G4Scintillation, is material dependent, and in this case, also particle dependent. It's up to the user to "know" it, or make assumptions about it. What it specifies is how energy loss (de/dx) translates into scintillation photon yield for a given type of particle, different from what is specified in the photon yield. This may just be known empirically. If you don't know it at all, I suggest you first use the default (==> 1).
