2014 “Impact Factor”: 1.684. Impact factor is a metric produced by Thomson/ISI’s Journal Citation Reports. Impact factor represents the average number of citations a particular article receives. It is sometimes used as a rough and partial proxy of a journal’s competitiveness, quality, and impact on a field’s literature. It can be affected by the journal’s format, by editorial decisions to include shorter commentary and book reviews along with longer articles, by the kinds of topics that the journal tends to feature, and by publication and citation conventions with the journal’s field.
