Drug addiction is a situation where a person feels a powerful need to have a drug. Addiction also involves other patterns which include finding it tough to control the demand to use the drug and feeling the use of the drug to be more important than more normal things such as family or work.
The impact factor of Drug Addiction 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.
