The speed of developments in nephrology has been fueled by the promise that new findings may improve the care of patients suffering from renal disease. Participating in these rapid advances, this series has released an exceptional number of volumes that explore problems of immediate importance for clinical nephrology. Focus ranges from discussion of innovative treatment strategies to critical evaluations of investigative methodology. The value of regularly consolidating the newest findings and theories is enhanced through the inclusion of extensive bibliographies which make each volume a reference work deserving careful study.

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.

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
