Veterinary technology is study that deals with the care of animals and their duties which are likened to what a nurse does for a doctor. Veterinary technicians generally find work in private veterinarian offices or research laboratories. Veterinary technology graduates have the same job responsibilities as veterinarians and often spend time with pet owners, getting medical histories and giving instructions for post-office care. Their study program is intense and very demanding.
Veterinary technology has generally established itself well in companion-animal and mixed-animal veterinary medical practice. Veterinary technicians technologists might advance their place in private practice by not only improving their clinical skills, but by also focusing on areas such as practice management, leadership training, business training, conflict resolution, information technology, and marketing/communications.
Journal impact factor is an index or a criteria devised by Eugene Garfield to categorize journals based on their citations. Impact factor is considered as a putative marker to indicate the journal quality. But the recent policies being adopted to improve the impact factor is becoming a topic of controversies today. This current scenario questions the reliability of impact factor. The citation index cannot be considered to determine the scientific quality of an article because the technicalities are not considering the scientific quality. Knowing or reading an article is not enough to determine their quality validating the content and approving the findings and revalidating the facts is vital in scientific research. It is highly impossible to do a scholar check in each and every article to detect fraudulent or unsubstantial citations.
