Impact Factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. Along with other metrics such as Altmetrics, Eigenfactor scores and usage statistics, it helps to evaluate a journal's relative importance, particularly when compared with others in the same field.
This increase demonstrates our commitment to publishing world class content reflecting a breadth of scholarship, and the dedicated efforts of our Editor in Chief Professor Sir Malcolm Evans KCMG OBE, our highly expert Editorial Board, and our publishing staff.
