Risk assessment is the most important aspect in Defense Management. A risk assessment is not about creating huge amounts of paperwork, but rather about identifying sensible measures to control the level of the risks. Control measures do not have to be assessed separately but can be considered as part of, or an extension of, your overall risk assessment. 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.
