IBC is considered one of the most aggressive and invasive of breast cancers. The overall survival rate for IBC patients is 40% for 5 years and 20% for 10 years compared to 87% for all breast cancers. Unfortunately, the incidence of IBC has been steadily increasing over the past decade, with more women presenting with the disease, being misdiagnosed, receiving inappropriate treatment and dying.
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.
