An Impact Factor Calculator is a tool designed to compute the impact factor of academic journals. The impact factor is a metric used to measure the average number of citations received by articles published in a particular journal within a specific timeframe.
The calculation of an impact factor involves dividing the total number of citations received by articles published in the journal during a certain period (usually the past two years) by the total number of articles published in that journal during the same period.
The formula for calculating the impact factor is:
Total Citations in Year: The total number of citations received by all articles published in a journal during a specific year.
Total Number of Articles Published in Previous Two Years: The sum of articles published by a journal in the two preceding years.
