Enuresis is a condition in which the individual suffers from a repeated inability to control urination called involuntary urination or urinary incontinence. This condition can be nocturnal, diurnal or mixed. Many patients (children) overcome incontinence naturally as they grow older, without treatment. Devices like moisture alarms which awaken a person when he or she begins to urinate are also used. They contain a water-sensitive sensor that is clipped on the pajamas. An alarm sounds when moisture is first detected. This behavioral training is one of the safest and more effective treatments. Medications in the form of increment of ADH levels can be done to treat this condition.
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.
