Sound and reproducible laboratory methods are the foundation of scientific discovery. Yet all too often nuances that are critical for an experiments success are not captured in the primary literature but exist only as part of a labs oral tradition. The aim of each Current Protocols title is to provide the clearest most detailed and reliable stepbystep instructions for all protocols relevant to a given subject area. Written by experts in the field and extensively edited to our exacting standards the protocols include all of the information necessary to complete an experiment in the laboratoryintroduction materials lists with supplier information detailed stepbystep procedures with helpful annotations recipes for reagents and solutions illustrative figures and informationpacked tables. Each article also provides invaluable discussions of background information applications of the methods important assumptions key parameters time considerations and tips to help avoid common pitfalls and troubleshoot experiments. Furthermore Current Protocols content is thoughtfully organized by topic for optimal usage and to maximize contextual knowledge. Quarterly issues allow Current Protocols to constantly evolve to keep pace with the newest discoveries and developments.Current Protocols in Human Genetics is the comprehensive resource for all types of research and clinical laboratory approaches pertaining to human genetics. Current Protocols in Human Genetics brings together hundreds of core and cutting edge techniques in all branches of genetics includingGenetic MappingGenotypingCytogeneticsIdentifying Candidate GenesIdentifying Sequence VariantsClinical CytogeneticsClinical Molecular GeneticsCancer GeneticsTranscriptional ProfilingGene TherapyForensic GeneticsModel Systems for the Analysis of Human DiseaseBiochemical GeneticsHighThroughput SequencingMitochondrial GeneticsEpigeneticsiPS Cell Models.

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.

Current Protocols in Human Genetics

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
