Careers and Development are inter-related fields of study with connections to many academic disciplines, organizational practices and policy developments in the emerging knowledge economies and learning societies of the modern world. Career Development International provides a platform for research in these areas that deals with questions of theories and theory development, as well as with organizational career strategy, policy and practice. Issues of theory and of practice may be dealt with at individual, organizational and society levels. The international character of submissions may have two aspects. Submissions may be international in their scope, dealing with a topic that is of concern to researchers throughout the world rather than of sole interest to a national audience. Alternatively, submissions may be international in content, relating, for example, to comparative analyses of careers and development across national boundaries, or dealing with inherently 'international' issues such as expatriation. Coverage: -Individual careers - psychological and developmental perspectives -Career interventions (systems and tools, mentoring, etc) -Government policy and practices -HR planning and recruitment -International themes and issues (MNCs, expatriation, etc) -Organizational strategies and systems -Performance management -Work and occupational contexts

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Career Development International

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
