Most frequently used in the sciences, and to some extent in the social sciences, impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the "average article" published in a given scholarly journal has been cited. Impact factor (IF) is often used as a measure of the importance of a particular journal to its field. The IF of a journal may be used as an objective measure of the "worth" of your publications when you go up for promotion or tenure. Use this to your advantage when you decide where to publish your research.
