Impact Factor?

Sumber: wikipedia

The impact factor, often abbreviated IF, is a measure of the
citations to science and social science journals. It is frequently used as a proxy for the importance of a journal to its field.
The publication of each year covered occurs in the summer of the following year. For example impact factors for 2008 will be published in the summer of 2009. Some related values, also calculated and published by the same organization, are:
immediacy index: the number of citations the articles in a journal receive in a given year divided by the number of articles published.

Hmmmm…. Mane korang akan pilih… yg ada ISI ke Scopus ke atau HI? Ang pernah join workshop publishing yg GS anjur… jemputan dia Lecturer dari IPTA n then bg penceramah tu dia cakap ape yg bagus adalah ada citation index.. ISI sangat penting… ini mgkin time tu xde lagi heboh2 psl Scopus n HI…nicky cakap kalu nk publish mesti tengok ada scopus ke x… huhuhuhuhu…. Kalu UMT… dia tekan yg ada HI… sbb kalu ada HI, diaorg kasi duit…. Hehehhehehehe… Bg Ang lak… tak kisah la mane2 pn… asal bleh publish… bleh ke camtu?

P/s: kalu ada maklumat salah tolong betulkan sendiri ye.... Ang baru nk tahu semua ni... hehhehehe....;p


  1. Setiap journal ada impact factor sendiri,Impact factor lagi tinggi lagi bagus. you boleh check impact factor ISI n Scopus untuk banding lah...Good Luck...

  2. bb chang, ang baca kat tenet, HI ni diaorang masih lagi debat lg tentang kehebatan HI ni.. tp buat mase ni, HI tinggi journal paling bagus...kalu x, xkan UMT nk bagi duit kan... hehhehehehe...;p... tp I xde paper nk anta... waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....
