Journal impact factors using Journal Citation Reports
The journal impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The impact factor helps you evaluate a journal’s relative importance, especially when you compare it to others in the same field.
The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of citations in the current year to articles published in the two previous years by the total number of articles published in the two previous years.
