The Impact Factor (IF) or Journal Impact Factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric index that reflects the yearly average number of citations that recent articles published in a given journal received. It is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field; journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to be more important than those with lower ones. The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year (2018) by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years (2016-2017). Note that 2018 impact factors are reported in 2019; they cannot be calculated until all of the 2018 publications have been processed by the indexing agency.
Besides, 79% scientific research articles published by PLoS ONE have received at least 1 citation in 2018. In addition to the 2-year Impact Factor, the 3-year Impact Factor and 5-year Impact Factor can provide further insights into the impact of PLoS ONE.
