Journal impact

A journal's impact factor was originally designed as a tool for comparing journals. The impact factor is a measurement of how frequently an average article is cited per year. The more often the journal is cited, the higher its impact factor.

The impact factor is highly discipline-dependent due to the speed with which articles get cited in a given field and its citation practices. The percentage of total citations occurring in the first two years after publication varies highly amongst disciplines. Accordingly, one cannot compare journals across disciplines on the basis of their relative impact factors and we urge our authors, readers and researchers that they assess the quality of the content of individual articles, not the reputation of the journal in which they are published.
