Research published in a high-impact factor journal reaches a wider audience. Thus, publishing in journals with higher impact factors and metrics is a great way to increase the reach of your research. Further, impact factors are a tool used to evaluate research in promotion and tenure committees.
Utilize the library’s journal evaluator tool to evaluate the quality and impact of your journal prior to submission. This tool will save you time by pulling impact factors, CiteScore, and other quality indicators for the journals you need, all in one place. All you need to search is the journal title or the ISSN.
Check out our library guide for more information on impact factors and journal metrics.
