Impact Factor

The Impact Factor is a statistical measure used to compare journals in a given field. Calculation is based on the average number of times articles published in a journal over the previous two years were cited in the current year.  Impact Factors are calculated for some 7000 journals in many fields and published each year as the Journal Citation Report.
