Welcome To Journal I Factor(JIF)...

Journal Impact Factor (JIF) is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to articles published in journals, books, patent document, thesis, project reports, news papers, conference/ seminar proceedings, documents published in internet, notes and any other approved documents. It is measure the relative importance of a journal within its field, with journals of higher journal impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. Journal Impact factors are calculated in yearly/half- yearly/ Quarterly/Monthly for those journals that are indexed in Journal Reference Reports (JRR).

In a given period (Yearly/Half- yearly/ Quarterly/Monthly), the journal impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the one or two (one or more) preceding periods.
