Flood risk assessment is the assessment of flood risk before setting up houses or establishments in a particular area. It is associated with the analysis of land prone to floods and therefore, estimate the extent of risk to property and life and re-direct development initiatives from such places to places that pose a lesser risk.
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.
