What is a Journal?

Ans.:- Journal: An academic journal is a peer-reviewed periodical in which scholarship relating to a particular academic discipline is published. Academic journals serve as forums for the introduction and presentation for scrutiny of new research, and the critique of existing research. Content typically takes the form of articles presenting original research, review articles, and book reviews.
The Internet has revolutionized the production of, and access to, academic journals, with their contents available online via services subscribed to by academic libraries. Currently, there is a movement in higher education encouraging open access, either via self archiving, whereby the author deposits their paper in a repository where it can be searched for and read, or via publishing it in a free open access journal, which does not charge for subscriptions, being either subsidized or financed with author page charges.

What is the Impact Factor of a Journal?

Ans.:- Impact Factor is the quantitative tools for evaluating journals. It is a measure of the frequency with which the article in a journal has been cited in a given period of timeIn a given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years.
The impact factor 2012 for a journal would be calculated as follows:
A = the no. of times articles published in 2010-11 were cited in journals during 2012; and B = the number of articles published in 2010-2011; then,
impact factor 2012 = A/B
(Impact Factor 2012 will be actually published in 2013, because it could not be calculated until all of the 2012 publications had been received and processed by the indexing agency). Visit the following external links for more infrmation:-
