Writing Style Guides for Publishing Books or Articles in Journals

Journal Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) of an academic journal is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in the journal. It is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field, with journals with higher impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. Impact factors are calculated yearly starting from 1975 for those journals that are indexed in the Journal Citation Reports and are published in June.  New journals will receive impact factor two years after indexing; more infrequent journals receive an IF rating after three years.
