The chemical data analysis defined by the term "chemometrics" means performing calculations on measurements of chemical data. This can be anything from- calculating pH from a measurement of hydrogen ion activity to computing a Fourier transform interpolation of a spectrum.The science of chemometrics gives spectroscopists many different ways to solve the calibration problem for analysis of spectral data. Some are very simple to understand, while others require a strong background in linear algebra. However, they all have one thing in common: they each solve an individual problem but do not address ALL possible problems.
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.
