Sports Physiotherapy is the special branch of physiotherapy that deals with the injuries related to sports. It focuses on prevention, evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, and performance enhancement of the physically-active individual. These are different from the normal injuries and require extreme care. Sports physiotherapy includes those interventions that assist the athletically-active individual in preventing injuries and then, if an injury occurs, continuing their pursuits with minimal disruptions.
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.
