High-impact neurology journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of neurology journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. Impact Factor 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 neurology field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a neurology journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in neurology journal during the previous two years.
