Journal of Vision Obtains First Impact Factor from ISI

Rockville, Md. -- Journal of Vision (JOV), an online-only, open access journal published by the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) has received its 2005 impact factor.  The journal's impact factor is 3.469, ranking it No. 5 in the Ophthalmology category.

The impact factor, which was calculated by Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), a division of Thomson Scientific, looked at articles published in the journal between 2003 and 2004 which were cited in indexed journals in 2005.

The 2005 impact factor for the journal was calculated as follows:

A = the number of times articles published in 2003-4 were cited in indexed journals during 2005

B = the number of articles published in 2003-2004

 

2005 impact factor = A/B.
