In every discipline there are journals that scholars consider highly influential. Journals are judged by various metrics, including some that assess the "impact" of published articles. These metrics usually look at the number of cited references made to papers published in a given journal. The impact factor (IF), also named as Journal Impact Factor (JIF) is a metric used to evaluate the importance of a Journal. It is determined by calculating an average number of citations received by the selected articles in that journal within the last few years.
NWACC library does not provide or subscribe to a tool to find the journal impact factor, but here is a library guide from Cornell Univeristy which explains various journal impact factor and author impact factors.
