What is Impact Factor of the journal.

What is Impact factor :

Impact factor (IF) of the journal is commonly used to evaluate the relative importance of a journal within its field. Journals with higher IFs are believed to be more important than those with lower ones. 

 Importance of Impact Factor:

The importance of journal impact factor is highlighted by AICTE in its sixth pay GR (published in 2010) and also in seventh pay GR (published in 2019), stating that “Equivalence for PhD is based on publication of 5 International Journal papers, each Journal having a cumulative impact index of not less than 2.0, with incumbent as the main author and all 5 publications being in the authors’ area of specialization”.


Ref: 7th Pay AICTE GR

Who calculates Impact factor:

For reputed publishers the Journal Impact Factor is calculated by Clarivate Analytics. Only SCI indexed journals have the impact factor calculated by Clarivate Analytics.

Publishing a research paper in a high impact factor journal gives real happiness to the researchers.
