ION’s NAVIGATION – Sixth year of growth

The Institute of Navigation announces its quarterly journal, NAVIGATION, The Journal of The (US) Institute of Navigation, has recorded its sixth consecutive year of growth of the publication’s Journal Impact Factor (JIF).

We at IAIN send our congratulations.

The JIF, an index that calculates the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in a journal, is considered a bellwether of the relative importance of a journal within its field. A journal with a higher impact factor generally is viewed as being more important than those with a lower impact factor due to its citation rate.

NAVIGATION’s JIF has now increased to 2.1, representing a consecutive seven-year increase.
