Abstract: This online workshop will explore the most important academic journal indexing systems and their impact factors. Impact factors are a tool for comparing and evaluating the relative importance of a specific journal within a scientific field, based on the average number of citations received by the articles published in it during a specific period. They are published annually, using the publication year of the article as a reference for evaluation. In this seminar, we will discover the most well-known of these indices is the Impact Factor (IF) published in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), which calculates the citations received by journals indexed in the Science Citation Index and Social Sciences Citation Index, included in the main collection of the Web of Science (WoS) database. Also, in the seminar, we will talk about the journals indexed in Scopus and its several impact indices (SJR, CiteScore, and SNIP).
