Ranking of scholarly journals (impact factors)
There are methods used to grade and rank the significance of individual scholarly journals according to impact and notability. These lists and criteria can be used as tools when determining whether a journal or publishing channel is a credible source.
Two of the most frequently used tools to grade a journal's impact are journal impact factors and The Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers.
In some subject areas there is a tradition of shortening the titles of the journals. Here you can find information how to interpret the abbreviations and how to find the whole title. You might need this for example if you use the reference system Vancouver.
