Impact Factor Update

Impact factor — the metric that purports to calculate a journal’s and an article’s scholarly influence by measuring the frequency of citation — has come under scrutiny for many reasons (not the least, its use as an outsourced proxy for tenure and promotion decisions), but ethical questions have been raised about some journals’ requiring their authors to cite them in order to game the system.

The Nature News Blog reports that a record number of journals has been removed from this year’s impact factor list: http://blogs.nature.com/news/2013/06/new-record-66-journals-banned-for-boosting-impact-factor-with-self-citations.html

The list can be found here: http://admin-apps.webofknowledge.com/JCR/static_html/notices/notices.htm#editorial_information

Appropriately, the list includes the Iranian Journal of Fuzzy Systems.
