International Institute for Citation Resources , Indexing & Impact Factor
About Citation Impact Factor The Citation Impact Factor (CIF) provides quantitative and qualitative tool for indexing and ranking, evaluating and categorizing the journals and research papers for academic evaluation and excellence. This factor is used for evaluating the prestige of journals. The evaluation is carried out by considering various factors like ISSN number, peer review originality, scientific quality, technical editing quality, editorial quality and regularity. We perform the in-depth analysis method. The acceptance and rejection rates of journals can be a determining factor. Low acceptance rate, high rejection rate journals are considered the best and most prestigious journals as the acceptance criteria is of high quality standard. Many journals and societies have web pages that give publication data and style requirements and often includes acceptance/rejection rates. The paper copy of the journal occasionally includes this data and will always provide current contact information. Whether a journal is indexed in the major indexing/abstracting service in the field is another criteria that can be used to assess the worth and quality of a journal.
Journals indexed in Citation Impact Factor database will have the right to use the CIF logo and the Citation Impact Factor value displayed on their website.
