Mucrormycosis is an infection caused by a typical fungus which belongs to the order mucorales. The target organs of the body to infect are sinuses, brain and lungs. This fungus resides mostly in soil by decaying the organic matter. Humans with low immunity can be readily affected by the fungus. And the other health conditions associated with mucormycosis are diabetes, AIDS and many. The treatment for these infections involves immediate surgical removal of dead and infected cells and tissues. High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. 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.
