scholarly impact of journals, individual researchers, and articles. Afterward, it will be clearer how different ‘impact factors’ now offered both by the Web of Science and Scopus are determined.


We will discuss the features of these factors as well as the evaluation of researchers through the h-index

and other methods. Article-related impact through citations and social media will also be explained.
