how important is that journal (article)?

4 Apr

IMPACT FACTOR:

how its calculated:

A = number of times articles published in 2011-2012 were cited in indexed journals during 2013

B = the number of articles, reviews, proceedings or notes published in 2011-2012

impact factor 2013 = A/B

(translation: if the articles from that journal are cited a lot, the impact factor is higher)
