Social tagging is the practice of generating electronic tags or keywords by users instead of specialists as a way to classify and describe online content. It is also called as collaborative tagging. These are keywords generated by internet users on a platform that are used to describe and categorise an object, concept or idea.
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.
