Points of attention in publishing
What are my rights and obligations as an author?
What is the impact factor of the journal I want to submit my article to?
You will find this information in the Journal Citation Reports. Impact factors tell you retrospectively what is the average number of citations that articles receive in the first two years after publication. It is important to note that the distrubution of citations over articles in any journal is very skewed and shows a lot of variation hidden from the impact factor average. Impact factors are citation figures, as such an aspect of impact measurement, and not a measure of quality. Many new journals, journals in the humanities and non-English journals have no impact factor.
