Domestic tourism is where the states come out a bit more aggressively, competing for a piece of the lucrative leisure and recreation segment. Domestic tourism for instance encompasses half of the tourists in British Columbia each year. BC Stats and Destination BC consider those travelling beyond their usual environment for business or for pleasure to be tourists.
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.
