Earth science may be a multidisciplinary educational field that integrates physical and biological sciences, (including however not restricted to ecology, physics, chemistry, zoology, mineralogy, oceanology, limnology, soil science, geology, region science, and geography) to the study of the atmosphere, and also the answer of environmental issues. Bionomics provides associate degree integrated, quantitative, and knowledge base approach to the study of environmental systems. Related areas of study embrace environmental studies and environmental engineering. However the study still suffers certain major drawbacks that are not compunded in the journals related to its precinct. Earth science may include vast studies, some may consider climate changes, other might hint only marine studies or sedimentology. On the other hand we are obstinate to consider every facet of the study be it climatology, ecology, physics, chemistry, zoology, mineralogy, oceanology, limnology, soil science, geology, region science, and geography etc. Earth science may be called as a substance study that not only considers the factors but also includes the consequences as to what we are standing upon and how have we reached here. The question now arises as to how much and how should, we act in order to maintain a balance that was once there a hundred years back. Effects like deforestation and the associated effects like soil erosion, climate variations etc. are nothing but ill effects of human mundane nature.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. 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.
