Several databases, besides basic statistics like number of articles published per year, number of citations to the journal each year, and number of references made each year, provide different metrics that measure the scientific influence and prestige of a journal.

The Journal Impact Factor was the first metric created for scholarly journals. Eugene Garfield first conceived of the idea of an impact factor in 1955. It is used to determine the impact a particular journal has in a given field of research and also to determine in which journal an author might wish to publish. It is reported each year in Journal Citation Reports.

The Journal Impact Factor was the only metric available for many years. But once the Internet made gathering statistics easier, other metrics were created. The Eigen factor was the next popular metric, followed by SJR and SNIP that are. The last, together with many other metrics, are provided by the following databases

SJR - SCImage Journal Rank
This metric doesn't consider all citations of equal weight; the prestige of the citing journal is taken into account.

IPP - Impact per Publication
Also known as RIP (raw impact per publication), the IPP is used to calculate SNIP. IPP is number of current-year citations to papers from the previous 3 years, divided by the total number of papers in those 3 previous years.

SNIP - Source-Normalized Impact per Paper
SNIP weights citations based on the number of citations in a field. If there are fewer total citations in a research field, then citations are worth more in that field.

H index

The index is based on the distribution of citations received by a given journal publication. In other words, a journal with an index of h has published h papers each of which has been cited in other papers at least h times. Thus, the h-index reflects both the number of publications and the number of citations per publication. The index is designed to improve upon simpler measures such as the total number of citations or publications. The index works properly only for comparing scientists working in the same field; citation conventions differ widely among different fields.

The journal  Le Infezioni in Medicina is indexed in the main databases since many years and all journal metrics are constantly growing over time as reported in the following table.

Highlighted in yellow is reported the  Cites per Doc. (2yrs) that measures the scientific impact of an average article published in the journal, it is computed using the same formula that journal impact factor (Thomson Reuters).
