The most common way of evaluating scientific work is through citation analysis. This is how the scientific achievements
of authors, co-authors, institutions and states are valued. Every researcher strives to publish his results in
a magazine with a good reputation. One of the basic indicators for determining the status of a scientific journal
is the so-called Impact Factor – IF (a factor of influence), which is a measure of the frequency of citations of
published articles in a certain period. Impact Factor is a potential indicator of the validity of an article because it
is assumed that there was a strict review procedure before its publication. The true value of the article is obtained
after its printing by the volume of citations from the presented results to the value of IF for the magazine in which
it is printed.
The aim of this paper is to familiarize the reader with the basic databases of various scientific and research activities
through which scientists connect, to clarify the notion and significance of the impact factor, which valorizes
the popular scientific journals, as well as to explain precisely the more specific terms which span all spheres in the
field of science.
The numerical value of the Impact Factor is calculated by the sum of quotations from the last two years divided by
the number of published papers in the journal in the same period. In the same way you can calculate IF for the last
five years. The study data presented in the paper is a dynamic biometric value that is constantly directed towards
emphasizing the best quality in all areas of research activity in the world.
Keywords: IF (Impact Factor), TRIF (Thomson Reuters Impact Factor), WoS (Web of Science), JCR (Journal
