Chronic illnesses are prolonged do not resolve spontaneously and are rarely completely cured. The most common are cardiovascular diseases hypertension coronary artery disease stroke and heart failure the arthritides asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease diabetes and epilepsy. There is increasing evidence that mental illnesses such as depression are best understood as chronic health problems. HIVAIDS has become a chronic condition in those countries where effective medication is available.Awareness is increasing that similar strategies can be effective in treating many different conditions. These are likely to involve the proactive identification of relevant populations to provide support for the relationship between people living with long term health conditions and health and social care professionals to develop evidencebased care guidelines which emphasise the prevention of exacerbation and complications and promote empowerment strategies for people living with chronic illness such as selfmanagement and education. They also require continuous evaluation of clinical humanistic and economic outcomes.

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.

Chronic Illness

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
