Bibliographic database

A significant number of bibliographic databases are still proprietary, available by licensing agreement from vendors, or directly from the indexing and abstracting services that create them.[2] Many bibliographic databases evolve into digital libraries, providing the full-text of the indexed contents. Others converge with non-bibliographic scholarly databases to create more complete disciplinary search engine systems, such as Chemical Abstracts or Entrez. History[edit] Prior to the mid-20th century, individuals searching for published literature had to rely on printed bibliographic indexes. See also[edit] Springer Realtime. Welcome to Sage.

Calculation[edit] In any given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years.[1] For example, if a journal has an impact factor of 3 in 2008, then its papers published in 2006 and 2007 received 3 citations each on average in 2008.

Impact factor

The 2008 impact factor of a journal would be calculated as follows: A = the number of times that articles published in that journal in 2006 and 2007, were cited by articles in indexed journals during 2008. B = the total number of "citable items" published by that journal in 2006 and 2007. ("Citable items" are usually articles, reviews, proceedings, or notes; not editorials or letters to the editor.) 2008 impact factor = A/B. (Note that 2008 impact factors are actually published in 2009; they cannot be calculated until all of the 2008 publications have been processed by the indexing agency.)
