DATABASES
 Databases contain information gathered from
thousands of scholarly journals, books, book series,
reports, conferences, and more.
 Databases can be used for narrowing/ enlarging the
research topic, verifying citations, and protocols/ patent
search.
 Some databases contain references cited by the
authors of the articles and thus can be used for cited
reference searching. This type of search enables the user
to find articles that cite a previously published work.
 Some databases contain citation measuring and
ranking of every scholarly journal in its subject area.

IMPACT FACTOR
• The impact factor (IF) of an academic journal is a
measure reflecting the average number of citations
to recent articles published in the journal. It 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.
• Impact factors are calculated yearly for those
journals that are indexed in the JCR.
• The impact factor was devised by Eugene Garfield,
the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information.
