Prognosis is the prior knowledge of outcome of a disease or a result of the known diseases. And it should have an idea, how it will be able to determine how a disease is likely to behave, with or without treatment. It is necessary to know about certain facts that the disease can be able to recover or not. These are called prognostic factors. For cancers like lymphoma, many factors determine outcome and results. Some are directly related to the disease - the disease stage, how large the disease is, or which organs are involved.
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.
