Journal Impact Factor

The Journal Impact Factor is calculated by dividing citations to recent items by the number of recent items. 

You can view the Journal Impact Factor by clicking any journal name from the Journals By Rank screen. For each year that the journal has been published, the Journal Impact Factor displays as a clickable link.
