Molecular Medicine deals with the study of disease or injury at the molecular level by analysing the mode to diagnose and treat disease by the way genes, proteins and other cellular molecules work. Research in this field mainly focuses on the cause certain genes, molecules and cellular functions become abnormal in diseased condition.
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.
