Research Impact Factors

What is Journal Impact Factor

The impact factor of a journal is a measure of the frequency with which the "average article" in a journal has been cited in a particular year or period.

There is currently no single tool/database that indexes all journals across all vendors.

Each database that offers citation analysis uses their own content and journals indexed to calculate citation analysis.
