Neonatal mortality is the number of deaths of the neonates per 1000 births. The neonatal mortality is the present challenge of the WHO Academy. The present statics have shown that more number of neonatal deaths is increasing every year.The probability of the deaths is more in the under developed countries due to low medical facilities and nutritional defects. Presently the African countries have been recorded to have maximum number of the infant deaths. 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.
