Adenocarcinoma is a type of cancer that originates in the Glandular cells, that forms lining in certain internal organs. These cells are responsible or secretating certain subtances and releasing them into their respective organs. These cancers are generally found to affect the epithelial cells. The most common adenocarcinoma are found in organs like lungs, prostate glands, esophageal, colorectal regions. 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.
