What is a journal Impact factor?
Impact factors are one indicator of journal quality. They are calculated by determining the number of times published articles have been cited in the preceding two years. The higher the impact factor, the more articles have been cited. The impact factor, however, should not be used exclusively to establish journal quality. Informed peer-review should also be considered.
Some tips for choosing the right journal:
Kronos: Southern African histories (DHET Accredited)
African Human Mobility Review - AHMR (DHET Accredited)
