Aerospace explains the human effort in science, engineering and business to fly in the atmosphere of Earth (aeronautics) and surrounding space. It's organisations conduct research, manufacture, design, operate/maintain air crafts, launchers, satellites etc. Aerospace differs from airspace. Aerospace has got wide range of fields which are not limited to any particular subject like aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, aeroacoustics etc. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
