Citations are important for a journal to get impact factor. Impact factor
is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles
published in the journal. The impact of the journal is influenced by impact factor, the journals
with high impact factor
are considered more important than those with lower ones. This information can be published in our peer reviewed journal with impact factors and are calculated using citations not only from research articles
but also review articles
(which tend to receive more citations), editorials, letters, meeting abstracts, short communications, and case reports.
