The process of adding the micro-nutrient elements, like vitamins, protein etc., to the food materials is known as food fortification; it is also known as food enrichment. Diets that have absence of variety can be insufficient in certain nutrients; there comes the need of food fortification. With the help of food fortification, a large population can be prevented from deficiency diseases.
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.
