A journal’s impact factor is a measurement of citation frequency that reflects the average number of citations to articles published in a science journal. Impact factors are calculated annually for those journals that are indexed in the Clarivate Analytics Journal Citation Reports. The impact factor of a journal in a given year is the average number of citations a paper published in that journal received during the two previous years. The impact factor is often used to rank the relative importance and scientific caliber of a journal within its field.
Here, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our Editorial Team Members, Guest Editors, authors, and reviewers for their significant contributions.
