Impact Factor 2020

What is the impact factor?

If you are looking to get the information about the impact factor of journals, then it is the right place where you get required information regarding the impact factor such as the definition of impact factor, what is the good impact factor, calculation of the impact factor and so on. For this, you have to read further content until the end. So let us start.



Highest impact factor journals

The impact factor is also known by the name of journal impact factor of an academic journal. It is based on the scientometric index that shows the annual average number of citations. Moreover, impact factor is having all the information which is published in the last two years in the given journal received.

In his study of a year, he said impact factor is the number of citations. These articles published in that journal during the last two preceding years in the given year and divided this by the total number of citable items, which released in that journal in the previous two years.

What is a good impact factor?

Before moving forward, it is essential to know about the necessary information about the impact factor. The definition of impact factor is the number of citations, the articles published in that journal during the last two preceding years, in the given year and divide this by the total number of citable items, which published in that journal in the previous two years.

On the other hand, along with the impact factor, it is important to know about the functional impact factor. Well, we all know that watch the numbers and higher will win. But the impact factor works beyond this and shows that numbers are not absolute. In other words, we can say that the higher the impact factor, the higher the rank of a journal.

What is considered a good impact factor?

The impact factor is beneficial, but when it comes to quality, then the use of the impact factor is not right. According to the database of the year 2017, the journal citation reports, tracked the impact factor for nearly 12, 298 journals. According to the database, out of the 12, 298 journals, just 239 titles, or 1.9 percent journals that were tracked by the JCR, impact factor of 10 or higher. Estimate 2/3 of the journals that were tracked by the JCR and the impact factor equal to or higher than 1.



How to calculate the impact factor?

To calculate the impact factor, you have to follow the information provided. The impact factor is determined by the averaging the number of citations that a journal receives and the mean number of times, which articles in the journal are referred to by the other articles. In other words, in the any provide year, we have known that impact factors are the number citations that is received in the year and the articles published in the journal during the last two years and then divide the whole this with the total number of citable items, which published in the same journal of the last two preceding years.

Calculation for Journal Impact Factor


A = Total cites In 1992

B = 1992 cites to articles published in 1990-91 (this is a subset of A)

C = Number of articles published in 1990-91

D = B/C = 1992 impact factor
