Q: How can I see a journal's Impact Factors for the most highly cited articles?

Example: After identifying an article relating to "influenza" and "H1N1", you can examine the five-year Impact Factor trend to understand the journal performance metrics by linking from the Web of Science to Journal Citation Reports. Here are the steps to follow:

Step 1
Go to Web of Science ( Enter "Influenza" AND "H1N1" under search field Topic. Click Search button.


Step 2
There are many articles. Sort by "Times Cited" and click the title of any top 10 articles to go into Full Record view.


Step 3
In the Full Record view, in the right navigation bar under Additional Information, click “View the journal’s impact factor (in Journal Citation Reports)”.


Step 4
The most recent 5-year Impact Factors will be shown. By clicking “Return to Journal”, users can examine other journal performance metrics such as Immediacy Index, Cited Half-life, Journal Ranking, etc (what do these terms mean?)
