Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a childhood disorder of the brain that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills. It is caused by a non-progressive brain injury or malformation that occurs while the childs brain is under development. A CP affected person might not be able to walk, talk, eat, or move the way most people do. The primary deficits include: muscle tone abnormalities, influenced by position, posture and movement, impairment of balance and coordination, loss of selective motor control. The secondary musculoskeletal problems are muscle contractures and bony deformities.
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.
