About Global Impact Factor

The Global Impact Factor (GIF) provides quantitative and qualitative tool for ranking, evaluating and categorizing the journals for academic evaluation and excellence. This factor is used for evaluating the prestige of journals. The evaluation is carried out by considering the factors like peer review originality, scientific quality, technical editing quality, editorial quality and regularity.

We perform the in-depth analysis  method. The acceptance and rejection rates of journals can be a determining factor. Low acceptance rate, high rejection rate journals are considered the best and most prestigious journals as the acceptance criteria is of high quality standard. Many journals and societies have web pages that give publication data and style requirements and often includes acceptance/rejection rates. The paper copy of the journal occasionally includes this data and will always provide current contact information.

Whether a journal is indexed in the major indexing/abstracting service in the field is another criteria that can be used to assess the worth and quality of a journal.

Inclusion in our database through which all journals can be registered, not just those deemed appropriate by an arbitrary group of individuals. However, it is important to note that we respects the various scientific communities submitting their information by allowing those communities to determine what they want to have displayed globally and what they want to keep confidential. Many countries may, for example, not want to have details about their scientists and projects listed.

Journals indexed in Global Impact Factor database will have the right to use the GIF logo and the Global Impact Factor value displayed on their website.
