ABSTRACT. Over the past decade, there has been increasing evidence describing metrics of journal performance that involve an analysis of citation frequency, IFs as the primary criterion in assessing research quality, the quality and credibility of process control in research, and the misuse of the impact factor to evaluate a researcher’s career. This paper aims to analyze and discuss IFs as scientific quality measures of journals, the direct correlation between the scientific quality and citation count of an article, measurement of scientific output for the purposes of creating indicators, and the rise of open-access electronic publishing. pp. 185–191
