Biochemical engineeringÂ is a branch ofÂ biotechnology Engineering,chemical engineering, Biomedical engineering and Pharmaceutical Engineering that mainly deals with the design and construction of unit processes that involve biological organisms or molecules, such asÂ bioreactors. The impact factor of Biochemical engineering 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.
