 

results and the content must support high level learning, teaching and research in the relevant subject area (b) Articles accepted for publication in the journal must be peer reviewed (c) The majority of contributions to the journal must be beyond a single institution (d) The journal must have an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) (e) The journal must be published regularly (f) The journal must have an editorial board that includes members beyond a single institution and is reflective of expertise in the relevant subject area (g) The journal must be distributed beyond a single institution

Impact Factor

The impact factor is a measure of the citations to science and social science journals. It is frequently used as a proxy for the importance of a journal to its field

Impact Factor

A: Current year cites to articles published in year-1 and year-2 B: Number of articles published in year-1 and year-2

C: Current year Impact Factor: A/B

For Example DNA Research

A: Cites in 2007 to items published in: 2006 =62 2005 = 153 A- Sum = 215

B: Number of items published in: 2006 = 24 2005 = 37 B – Sum = 61 2007 Impact factor A/B = 215/61 =3.525
