Impact Factor

An Impact Factor is one measure of the relative importance of a journal, individual article or scientist to science and social science literature and research. 

You may want to determine a journal's impact factor before considering a submission.  Use the Journal Citation Reports database to determine a journal impact factor.

Organize Your Research

EndNote and RefWorks are two popular information management tools that enable you to organize your citations, attach PDFs of articles, share citations for collaboration, and insert citations and create bibliographies as you write.

  • EndNote is available as a desktop version (purchase required through the U Bookstore or UWare), or as a free-to-UW-subscription web-based program.
