A Journal Impact Factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. It is used to measure the importance or rank of a journal by calculating the times its articles are cited.

To find Impact Factors, you can use Incites Journal Citation Reports (JCR). In JCR, use the “Go to Journal Profile” search option to enter your journal title or abbreviation. 

Note: if you are off-campus, you must be logged in via the proxy server to access JCR.
