The branch of biology that deals with the study of animals and their kingdom in a broad way is known as zoology. With the help of zoology, we are able to know about the roots, structure, processes and many more about the family of animals and birds. Terms like evolution, habitats and extinction are having meaning and are in the reach of us just due to zoology.
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.
