The International Society for Indexing (ISI) was founded by renowned Researchers and Scientist in 2015. A group of large number of researchers around the world in different disciplines provides the scientific impact factor. International Society for Indexing (ISI) provides the citation index i.e. Scientific Citation Indexing (SCI). The ISI provides indexing to the major International Journals and Proceedings. SCI maintains the citation indexing of thousands of academic Journals, books, and proceedings.
The citation indexing databases maintains the citations of various articles published online through various Journals, and proceedings. Scientific Citation Indexing (SCI) allows a researcher or scientist to identify which articles have been cited in any other particular earlier article, and how much frequently the articles are cited of a Journal. The Impact Factor provided by the Scientific Citation Indexing (SCI) indicates the how much articles are citing the articles of a Journal or proceeding. The Impact Factor (IF) of an academic journal provided by Scientific Citation Indexing is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in that journal. The Impact Factor can be used frequently as a measure for the relative importance of a Journal within its field, with journals with higher impact factors deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. Researchers can distinguish among various Journals through the Impact Factor of a Journal, which shows how much articles are cited of a Journal.
The Scientific Citation Indexing (SCI) has been established to provide the citation information of a Journal. The SCI also publishes the annual Journal Reference Report which list Impact Factor of the each of the Journals indexed with SCI. Journal Impact factors are calculated in yearly for those journals that are indexed in Journal Reference Reports (JRR).
Scientific Citation Indexing indexes the Journals and provides the impact factor to the Journals for evaluation of the prestige of the Journals. SCI indexing provides the impact factor to the Journals on the basis of various factors which are considered important for evaluation of the Journal namely Peer Review Process, Novelty and Originality of the Articles, Scientific Quality of Papers, Technical Editing Quality, and Editorial Board Quality.
Journals indexed in Scientific Citation Indexing database will have the right to use the SCI Impact Factor logo and the SCI Impact Factor value displayed on their website.
