Impact factors

The importance of an academic journal in comparison to other journals in the same field is derived by its impact factor. A journal's impact factor is determined by the number of times that it's articles are quoted or referred to in other publications. If you are interested in impact factors, check the Journal Citation Reports (JCR). This is an annual publication of statistical data that is used world wide to judge academic journals.
