Publishing your research with the correct journal
Are your research output submissions due? Your university most likely requires submissions of all your research outputs from September to December; with this, the words ‘Impact factor’ will come up in relation to journals.
Knowing exactly what this impact factor is and how to explain it simply will be a massive boon to your fellow researchers, new and old, and we have just such a description for you.
A journal’s impact factor indicates how important and trusted the journal is for researchers in its particular discipline. It reflects the average citations of the journal articles in journals, books, conference proceedings, etc. The more the journal’s articles are cited, the better the citation scores or impact factor will be, indicating a higher level of trust and usage in the field as a reliable source for valid information. The benefit to you as an author and researcher when publishing in a journal with a high impact factor is thus clear.
Your work is essential, and this should help highlight the role journal impact factors play in ensuring your research is disseminated and cited as widely as possible with a trusted journal.
