About FDA

Average impact factor of journals in which OSEL-generated research papers were published during the month

Dictionary: An impact factor (IF) is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field, with journals with higher impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. The IF reflects the average number of citations to articles published in science and social science journals. There are many factors that must be considered in choosing the appropriate journal for dissemination of scientific research and it is acknowledged that the IF is highly discipline dependent. However, the average IF for articles published by OSEL provides an estimate of the importance of its research.
