(Tips) The fastest way to determine or check journal impact factors

Hi all,

In some cases, during research you will encounter some journals that you’re not familiar with. Hence, it is important to determine its impact factor as it is the fastest way to decide how much reliable the journals are. Hence, if you’re trapping in the mentioned problem, feel free to visit this website . provide the fastest way to find the journal impact factors. Besides, it also provide the latest ranking of impact factors.

Here an example, we search latest impact factors for Remote Sensing of Environment journal.  Based on the picture below, it give the current ranking of impact factor (2012). Easy enough right?


Hopefully, by using the website, it help you guys to evaluate the reliability of the journal.

Btw, feel free to check list of remote sensing journals with their impact factors (2011) and list of remote sensing journals with their impact factors (2012). Thanks you.
