Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the commonest infections in woman next to respiratory infections. This infection is predominantly seen in woman of more than 40 years of age. The urinary tract which includes kidneys, bladder, and ureters are infected in this case. The condition is most often caused by bacteria. Blood passes through urine along with symptoms of pain, burning sensation, lower abdomen discomfort, shivers and chills. Increased urge to pass urine can be noticed as a major symptom. 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.
