The Journal Citation Reports (JCR) serves as a widely recognized tool providing reliable academic data and unique multidisciplinary journal evaluations. The Journal Impact Factor (JIF) stands as a crucial metric for assessing a journal’s international influence, calculated by averaging the number of citations received by articles published in the journal within a specific timeframe. Each year, JCR ranks journals belonging to different databases or subsets within the same discipline. This approach enhances the comprehensive portrayal of a journal’s standing within its field and increases the transparency and credibility of evaluations.
