The title is Impact Factor of Journal


The impact factor is one of the most important measures to determine the importance of a journal or how impactful a journal is in the scientific community. This is basically based on the number of total citations received by all the papers published in that journal during a particular period of time.

Journals that publish fewer articles but receive more citations have a greater impact on journals that accept and publish more research articles, But if cited below their impact factor, it reflects the average number of citations a journal article received in the previous 2 years.

Fewer papers with more citations in a journal will have a higher impact. More papers with fewer citations in a journal will have a lower impact
