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 (http://isiknowledge.com/wos). Enter "Influenza" AND "H1N1" under search field Topic. Click Search button.
There are many articles. Sort by "Times Cited" and click the title of any top 10 articles to go into Full Record view.
In the Full Record view, in the right navigation bar under Additional Information, click “View the journal’s impact factor (in Journal Citation Reports)”.
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?)
